I have a nice call for CW, but try November Zero United United over and
over. I get many requests for a repeat of the first letter with November,
but not Norway. A try of Nancy was a total bust from non-English speakers.
Not trying to win anything, but 9Y1YC and JT1JA back to back, OK 8 minutes
apart, and HS0ZEE a bit later on 20M from Kansas was worth the whole
Well, maybe hearing a VA3 tell W3LPL that he was pretty weak and asking if
he was QRP ran a close second!
