That of course should have been written as:   WN6ZDF/KG6

It's like those people who stick callsigns on the cluster like W4ABC/P5

not to indicate that he is in North Korea, but really meaning is that a 
Florida station is operating in Texas.  What he should post is W4ABC/5

Come on guys, for goodness sake, we're supposed to be intelligent human 



PS  Why am I not G/GM4FDM   or GJ/GM4FDM????

That my get up and go - has got up and went
But I really dont mind when I think with a grin
