Except...  for the amount of time he'd spend giving fills...

An 'E' tends to get lost.  

It's not a good letter on phone either, where it's easily confused with
"T" and "B" and "C".  

I wonder how much he'd gain using ZD8N?  (HC8N certainly works!)  "N"
can be a problem on phone though.  

All considered, I think ZD8Z is a pretty darned good call.

who used to be WB9NME, so I know of what I speak regarding "E" and "N"!
