  • Recently, a few station are not using the "Radio Amateur Protocol" by announcing full call sign. Example recent case 15/06/05 within 0800-0900 QSO RKK, one station just mentioned his last 3 alphabet XXX, instead full protocol 9W2 XXX or 9M2 XXX. So Country Code (9), Class Code (M or W) and state Region Code (2, 6, or 8) are missing in his call sign.Please keep professionalism of HAM spirit . Eventhough you are in rush, please give full call sign .
