Close - DE KC8UFV

HTML stripped some of the spaces out. I added some spaces to make it more readable. I have just corrected it to a more HTML acceptable format.

The spaces between the dashes throws off the reading. Maybe you should use hyphens rather than underscores for the dashes?

Hm, call sign starts with K, that means US west of the Mississippi, but I don't know if the 8 narrows it down from there (I'm pretty sure the C does not.)

I already edited my signature to adjust that.

You have the right country, but you won't find me where you mentioned. The K (or Ax or N or W) only specifies the US, and the 8 says it was issued in the 8th call district (MI, OH, WV).* See Map I'll give you a hint as to which - If I cross the only Great Lake that touches my state, I would need to add a /VE3 to the end of my call.

* Does not apply to Vanity calls.

EDITED to add a missing prefix

mike joined after me yet he reached 100 way before I did....he posts about three times as much as me...

and the japanese level thing has to be 1-5 for it to work...I think... and kind of based off the japan shop level thing divided by 2.
me...ish:
[322/(05.01.07 -03.07.06) - 1.5?] + 0 + 1 = 1.2888888


mike...ish:
[1013/(05.01.07 -03.08.06) - 5(benefit of doubt)] + 0 + 0 = 2.616541

QED mike is about twice the geek I am.

note:I suck at subtracting dates so the numbers are slightly fuzzy...

Yudan Taiteki aka Chris reached 1000 posts. Congratulations, Chris!

Of course, around 598 of those posts say the same darn thing ("I love romaji blah blah blah"), but still... ;)

why would anyone say "I love romaji?" Do they not know that Romaji is the cause of every disaster in the world today? :@ ロマジは闇 本当エビルだ
