    As a help to the newer digital folks, I would like to post a suggestion about sending your call sign or calling another station.... This is very simple......Before you transmit your call send 2 CR Carriage Returns...
    The reason is that your call is no mixed in with the noise....It makes it clear what or who is sending on the
    screen.... Thanks..... Skip

    I have been doing that all along, but if their a lot of junk flowing sometimes it doesn't help much.

    I rely in the software to pick out my call.

    The reason we ask for at least 2 CR is that when we are NCS and have many stations checking into the net it spreads them out a bit.
    The software does it's job , but when you have many stations calling it's easier to see the print when spaced out....
