Before we devolve completely into OT silliness .. ;-) .. this ties into 
a sort of unrelated question that's always been in my mind about what 
callsign prefix manned operations on the moon or Mars should use.  
(Putting aside the question of how practical Earth-Mars ham 
communications will or won't be..)  It's not an entirely academic 
question, because it comes up in a book I'm writing -- for now, I've 
picked ZZ9 for want of a better one -- but I think at some point there 
will be a need for it, and it's better to think things out beforehand 
than to hack and kludge them after the fact ..

-Bruce, someday hoping to sign ZZ9/N5VB
