locked Re: : Pirates galore

I certainly hope that no one mistakes me for a pirate when I call.  Using a portable call sign and being half a world away from the home QTH makes for quite a call/grid split.  All is well when calling CQ or QRZ, as well as signing 73, but calling another station will clip off the portable designator.


Here are some examples of RF leaving my shack in the islands:


Looking normal:

CQ DU2/WA8UGN PK08

QRZ DU2/WA8UGN PK08

DE DU2/WA8UGN PK08

DE DU2/WA8UGN 73


Looking like a pirate:

G5BNV WA8UGN PK08

G5BNV WA8UGN -12

G5BNV WA8UGN R-03


73 DE Paul DU2/WA8UGN
