    Q-T-H = three syllables
    20 = two syllables

    HOME = 1 syllable
    HOUSE = 1 syllable

    Good point, although if you're operating from a hot air balloon, from the top of a mountain, or from a car that's heading south into Truth or Consequences on I-25, the person to whom you're speaking probably wants to know that rather than the location of your home.

    Exactly.

    I've heard "...my working conditions here at my home QTH..."

    Nothing like throwing in as much hamateur talk as possible.

    You really do like to twist the logic don't you ;)

    Maybe it's just me, but in my 45 years as a ham, I have never once heard a ham say on the radio "OK - well, I'm just about to arrive home to the hot air balloon - go ahead and drop the ladder - I'll be right up"

    :D:D

    In such a case, "home" and "home QTH" are re-redundant. Somehow, "my location" beats them all. Sorry if it's not "hamateurish":mad: enough for some.:rolleyes:

    I use few codes in ssb, if you count roger and 73 that's about it. I say home (I don't work mobile), I say my wife or the misses or even the Contessa in reference to my wife. I do use the phrase DX occasionally.
    It's most likely because using cw is rare except with my elmer (he likes it) or in a contest.
