    I'm just curious. I don't hear it often but occasionally. Maybe I don't spend enough time on phone I guess.

    Ten Ten International. They want 10-10 numbers.

    Of course because they are looking for 10-10 contacts. It's a new thing. They've only been doing it for 60 years.

    The majority of my recent contacts are 10m CW. Haven't heard 10-10 callers on 10m CW yet, though. I frequently hear a KC4 station calling 10-10 on SSB though.
