What I love are the ones that give the next-to-last two letters: "XY" for
I like to say: "XY, what's your call?"

I decided to try a new policy during a recent trip to PJ2. If someone called
with other than their full call, their prefix became "I2".
Me: "PJ2/K8ND QRZ?"
Me: "Italy Two XYZ 59"
Caller: "Uhhh, my call is KC4XYZ. 59"
Me: "Are you sure? All I heard was "XYZ".
Normally I just don't answer them, but this was more fun!
