I see similar stuff.  I get sent my full name as is on my ham license including middle initial.  I always send my name as Bill.  (The only people who call me William are with the Government, IRS etc.)


Even in some of our PODXS contests where the name is part of the exchange and I send my name as Bill, I see it logged in the contest results as “William”.  I blame it on computers.   They make everything impersonal.


Happy Radio!

Subject: [070] Question ?



Lately I've been working a lot of station  who when answering a call, send both my first and last names ?   What's up with this ???   It seems to not be in the Amateur Radio tradition of just sending one's first name.  Seems to me kind of like junk mail and very impersonal.  


Just curious...
