You should have told him to read TR61-01!
you raise a vary valid point here. Does the STROKE even ne4ed to be pronounced? the receiving operator may record is as / but the transmitting operator shouldn’t need to state something self-evident.
You stated you’re portable, you must be /P.
I have the same issue with emails and websites *com. It’s universally understood there’s a dot preceding COM, NET, GOV, US, UK.
It does for CEPT operation.
Yes, I understand and agree with that!
I suppose I should note I’ve NEVER seen an operator – on LOCAL communications – get lazy or sloppy. That is a bit of an annoyance. We’re always bringing new operators along so we really shouldn’t be teaching bad habits!
The only one i know is - . . - . since i don’t have any microphone
So no “barre de fraction” for you.
Only in the real life, even if in France the word “slash” is now much more used than “barre de fraction”, most probably because of daily / permanent use of computers in personal and professionnal activities.

Do you really think that M/W6PNG and MW6PNG are the same station?
LOL! No, but M/W6PNG and M0SNA are the same station.
Der Schrägstrich „/“ (formell solidus , englisch slash )
Der umgekehrte Schrägstrich „\“ (engl. backslash )
thats in my 70 year old brain…
Except for CEPT operation where the word “STROKE” is mandated. See TR-6101 (2.3)
The CEPT rules say “must” not “should” or “can” but “must”, so “stroke” it is and nothing else between the visited country prefix and the callsign.
