I hope no one takes offense to this, but being a newly licensed amateur operator, its hard to recognize a lot of the call signs in the area. You just get so used to saying you call signs and they just roll off your tongue without thinking, and fast most of the time. You also know your friends on the air and you also speak theri call signs rather fast. It's hard to a newbe to catch all of this at times, and especially if you're an older person with a slight hearing problem. I know if I cant hear the call signs, I cant say them, if I cant call on someone, I can't talk. That's the rules. So I hope some will slow down on the pronouncing of ther call signs, for the hobby's sake! Thanks.
