My only problem with the phonetics was having to correct VO1HE from VO1HX.
ECHO and XRAY sound surprisingly similar in a pileup. I found EDWARD did the
trick quicker that ENGLAND or ECUADOR.
It would also make things a lot easier if every station gave its callsign at
the end of each (or every second) QSO instead of QRZ. I must have wasted an
hour listening to "QRZ" stations waiting for some form of identification
only to find that I had worked them already.
