Like everything else, it always depends on the situation.

Well, I think I did a little better on today's pass.  Again, I'm not good
at working DX, too scatter brained I guess.  But thanks to those that made
it easier for me with short simple calls.  But I also agree that calls
with a letter that can be missinterpreted, need phonetics for it.  But
probably not for the whole call (on a clear FM channel)

I was using a D7 HT and an Arrow.
The students were using $88 HT's in a 2 foot chicken wire corner
reflecotr to listen.

No more scheduled class demos this semester, so thanks for the contacts.
