Hi, my name is Dave, and I've been known to occasionally let a "please copy" slip past my lips. I work hard to prevent it, but the struggle is real and must be fought one QSO at a time. However, I now have a whole new level of respect for my personal struggle. I never knew that the evil scourge of "please copy" was on par with the struggle of so many brave people during the civil rights movement. You're a true hero for taking a stand, Jim.
