Hans, nicely put. I agree with you. I will be signing K1TN/2 this weekend to 
indicate right away that I'm not in Newe Englande anymore, Dorothy.

When I was a 14-year-old back in the last millennium my parents and I moved 
to a new house about four city blocks from my FCC "station location." For 
what seemed like forever I had to sign WA9AUM/9. I thought that was 
ridiculous. I've had a problem with Authority ever since. I've been moving 
around ever since, too, trying to stay one step ahead of the Thought Police.
