In reply to 2E0YYY:
Convinced you say but make no suggestions. It can’t have been too hard
for either you or your QSO partners or you would have stopped using
early in the activation.
Yesterday, using MO6MMM, I worked over 220 VHF/UHF contacts from G/SP-004. My “O” was “read back” as a zero on umpteen occasions. Therefore, it would seem to me the “O” is somewhat confusing.
Clearly, up there in GM land where no-one uses the VHF band (my last two activations up there producing just seven contacts on FM), this problem would never arise.
So which of the 25 letters available both conveys "Olympic"
and is a better choice?
I’m not paid to choose anything, Andy. I’m merely highlighting the problem with sticking an “O” into a UK call sign.
