Also callsigns.  Those should go, too, because a lot of times people
copy them wrong.  Did you know that some of the foreign ones you
letters and numbers in different orders!  Too hard!

RST is, fortunately, already gone from BARTG, which is good because a
LOT of people get that wrong on teletype.  Also, some people don't
remember what frequency they are on (you know how it is, change band,
go oil the gears, come back, forget to write new band in log) so
therefore band isn't idiot-proof and it needs to go.

Let's see, what does that leave?  Frequency not needed, nor the other
guy's callsign, and certainly not an exchange.  That should be it.
What else would be needed?  I mean stuff that's idiot proof?
