This has been well covered recently in this forum, almost to the point of
becoming annoying. Please take note and pass the word to your ham
1) FCC RULES PART 97
DOES NOT REQUIRE OR EVEN MENTION
THE IDEA OF MODIFYING YOUR ISSUED OPERATOR CALL SIGN WITH A /P, /M, OR /R
. It has been over 45 years since that ID method and the
single licensed station location concept was abandoned by the FCC,
2) Well meaning amateur "Elmers", PLEASE STOP
teaching new hams those archaic cancelled ID rules which do not exist in Part
97. They are incompatible with the advanced digital QSO technologies available

outside the licensee's country which uses the host country's assigned
3) When operating WSJTx modes you enter your issued
callsign (maximum 6 characters) and your grid square. Nothing else will fit
into the highly compressed data protocols of these weak signal modes and be
readable by your QSO partner at the other end. Meanwhile, ARRL and
others offering virtual QSL services have added multiple location capability
into their packages, specifically to accomodate amateur operators with more
