Be careful what you wish for, you might get it.  The "H" in W7WHY has given 
me grief for years.  I don't know how many times when sending it at 35+ wpm 
it gets busted to WSY.  I finally slowed that part of the callsign down to 
about 15 WPM and don't have as much problem.  I think the sudden change of 
speed makes people listen more or something.  I remenber there used to be a 
call, W5HSE, or something like that.  That'd be a nightmare.  73
