[CQ-Contest] The battle of the Call Signs

Even spacing letters doesn't help in some cases. Before Steve dumped NJ4F 
for NR4M, we had a heck of a time with people hosing the call on cw. Seemed 
like half the time people had it as N1VF. We tried reducing speed when 
sending the call, putting spaces between the call, and both. Nothing seemed 
to work. NR4M is 100% better except for Sweepstakes!

I suspect that Bob W4DR had a recurring problem with the D and R in his 
call, because I've never heard him send it on cw without a space between 

I hope that Jim Cain's (K1TN) attempt at rejuvinating the contesting juices 
is working. Great to here him back at it!
