About sending "TU" to confirm a QSO. I often do it - and it's always nice
to be polite. However, it can create problems on CW.
During the CW NAQP - I actually heard and exchange that was like this (I
forget the actual name used):
I am sure that the name was "BOB". Just important to put enough space in
there to make it clear it isn't part of the name.
There was a station using the name TUCK in the NAQP as well - and about
half the logs ended up with "CK" as the name.
I am getting more and more comfortable sending the other guys callsign when
S&Ping as N6RO has been doing for awhile now. I always like to hear this
as the CQing station - just to be 100 percent sure that you were calling me
and not someone on an adjacent channel that I can't hear.
