    Well, yeah, because WM6CND is a U.S. station. Yes, you could end your QSO with a CW ID...but who does that? ;)

    Are you saying that you can't send your callsign at more than 20wpm when engaged in a CW QSO? That's not correct, either.

    97.119(b)(1) is the 20 wpm rule. It says that you may ID in CW, and if you do so using an automatic device used only for identification, the speed must not exceed 20wpm.

    That bit most often becomes relevant for Morse IDs on voice repeaters.

    In an ordinary CW QSO, you can ID as fast as you want, because the device you're using to send isn't used only for ID.

    For example, if the person doing the talking, etc., holds a Novice Class, Technician Class, General Class, or Advanced Class license, and the communication is taking place on a frequency reserved for Amateur Extra Class operation, someone holding an Amateur Extra Class license MUST be present as the control operator. Under those circumstances, the person talking, etc., IS considered, by regulations, to be a 3rd party and, as such, when working a station NOT licensed by the FCC, 3rd party regulations apply.

    First of all, the other station MUST be in a country that has a 3rd party agreement with the United States. Then, the requirement in 47 CFR Part 97 Section 97.115(d) MUST be followed. Since the person doing the talking, etc., does not have operating privileges in that segment, they are considered to be just like any other person who does not have a license.

    The truth be known, there are only a relatively few countries that do have a 3rd party agreement with the United States. Many countries that one would assume has such an agreement do not have an agreement and there are a number of countries with which a 3rd party agreement would not exist that do have such agreement.

    I must be getting old - after the first party, and the second party, I'm too tired for a third party. :p

    It's sales pitch talk: "You could lose up to ten pounds a week, or more."

    If I understand what you're saying, you are of the opinion that the majority of people who sign with both call signs are old. Interesting.

    Yes, hams of all ages appear to have become increasingly rude, fail to employ good operating practices, are unnecessarily judgmental of each other, and have difficulty doing independent research Template for Do You Gracefully End a
