Re: Phonetics on FM sats


It's very helpful if stations with difficult letters would use phonetics. 
Two guys on the 2200z SO-50 pass this evening had suffixes that were very 
similar and caused a lot of confusion on my end ( KB1FCV and KC2OCV ). I'm 
still not sure if the latter one is right.   :)
