That is how I understand it also. I just cant find any documentation that KN was used in the commercial service.

I do believe the morse conversation (ie. W1HCB de W1AW KN) would mean
that W1HCB is the only one who should respond.

I was wondering one thing about K KN SK, plus other prosigns and Q Signals.
Does anyone know where it is written that it must be done a certain way? I
thought that operating practices were just general guidelines. I mean what
is the big deal if someone signs sk sk sk at the end of a QSO, or sends
RYRYRYRYRY before sending PSK. Maybe this op is an older ham that use to run
teletype (RTTY) all the time and is just getting started in PSK. Yes, it
may not be common practice to send RYRYRYRY or VVVVVVV at the start of an
exchange in most modes today. But that may have been common practice back in
the day. If I was picky about every little thing in PSK. I no longer would
be enjoying this wonderful mode. I was always taught use plain text. Rather
than use QRL, ask "is this frequency in use" after listening on a frequency.
Personally I feel that as long as I can copy the other hams callsign, name
and report. I don't care how he formats his macros, or types in the
information. Just remember that amateur radio is only a hobby. It is suppose
to be fun. Also, we was all new to this mode at one point. Now think about
this for a minute. When you kids, grand kids, or great grand kids get
involved in amateur radio 15 - 20 years from now. How will the format of the
QSO have changed? Look at the way they text today.
