    I'll need you to translate that, I do not know what your meaning. 73, Rich

    I get it, but I'm with KBW, writing in 1931:

    We rise to express our anguish in much the same fashion that we would if someone started a vogue of saying 74 instead of 73 to mean the same thing.​

    Still doesn't beat, from WB1HIH's QSL card of long ago: "The station that's a laugh and a half."

    Perhaps I have overestimated the learning intellect here? But as the case may be, 73 Rich

    I'll use "73's" on 10 meters, if F2 ever returns.
