Jeff...and all

Well, I have one for that, too. I used to be N4OKX. Actually received QSL 
cards made out to N40KX (november four-zero kilo xray) and SSB ops who would 
respond to my call like that. Who knows how they logged it.

Now, mechanized glee, that's another thing altogether.

73, Mark, K9GX
