How to say call sign question

Guest NewGuest

Recommended Posts

As someone with experience in IT tech support in my pre-retirement life, we had to ask customers to give us the serial number of their equipment.  Even on a state-of-the-art telephone, it is often hard to discern "F" vs. "S", "M" vs. "N", etc., so we asked our customers to use the phonetic alphabet.  It helped considerably.  I can only imagine, when giving my call sign of "WSCS844", that people on the receiving end might have trouble discerning the "S" unless I overemphasize the "...sss" at the end of each.  I know, it really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.
