What is the story with all the 2x1 calls from Germany in WAE this weekend?
Sure threw me for a loop when things like DR1R and DQ4W called in through
the noise on 80m!

Are these new "vanity" calls?  Just for contest use?  Surprised we had not
heard something about this on the reflector as it is a big deal for our
friends in Germany.

Coolest call heard: DM1A
Worse call heard: DK5E  (I kept waiting for the second letter)
