Yes indeed. Me too. GM0F gets a lot of GM3??? I suppose it's the EEE in Golf Mike ZEEEro Foxtrot. And then I get every called GM3 plus 3 letters that exists in the super-check list and it's impossible to get people to reduce the number of letters in a callsign when they've got it wrong! And have you ever tried counting zero?

Hi Jukka,
It is really strange, and/but true.

What about 0 (zero) and 3. Many times stations calling back me as HA3HW but
I'm HA0HW.
Three is monosyllabic word, the zero is two.
