Nevermind the exchange, (hi) Get the callsign correct first , too !


Not master databases or prefills, but bad spots by humans (?) *might*
explain why, when operating in Newfoundland as VO1TTT I had several folks
call me (on cw, usually)

v01ttt (vee zero one t t t) 


I never could wrap my head around that one, but I've had it happen every
single time I've used that call in Newfoundland at least several times per


(the last time I was there I must have called a certain EU stn 4-5 times and
each and every time he came back to me, he made my "oh" a "zero"..nobody is
that bad at typing or copying code.


Anyone know how that happens?


Weird !
