    I don't think "AMF" would play well. (AMF was a pop farewell to friends back in the late 1970s; for the unenlightened, 'A' stands for "Adios," and "MF"--you'll have to work that one out. ; > )

    I was on 20 meters Friday and heard "10-4", a guy I was talking to in FL. , said he was a newer ham. So you might consider "10-7". Good luck. 73 Rich

    "73" still covers it all, just fine. :)

    I occasionally throw in a 10-4 to wind up the HHOM's.

    Or you could say...

    “back on the side”

    “reading the mail”

    “I just got d-o-w-n”

    That last one is my favorite.

    We welcome CBer's, don't we? Or shouldn't we be welcoming them? An interest in HF is a starting point--although they don't know it as "HF" yet. When they show an interest in what hams do, they see we have a *bit* more professionalism. And we can run a "kicker" and a "slider" legally! And instead of "10-4", we use "Roger Roger Roger." And we don't have to hide, or be ashamed. And we adjust our transmitters to use only as much bandwidth as necessary.

    I keep hearing the question, how can we increase our numbers? Well, here's an underutilized source of new hams.

    KCN6537 (1973), out.

    So does 77, 72, 73, 88, & 161. After one of those, you could add;

    ES GL (Good Luck)

    ES DX
    ES TU
    ES GW (Good Work)

    ES GB (God Bless) or (Good-Bye)
    ES CUL
    ES SS (Stay Safe)

    Nah, not my style... I'm more like, "TU OM ES 73" Not, "73 GL CUAGN SN ES HVE GRT DA NICE TO MEET U TNX AGN 73." Not that there's a thing wrong with that; I've just never liked long goodbyes. ;)
