One or two stories from the real radio life:
I was sitting with my CW mentor, TF3AX, when I first got on air just after getting my HF license, and I was extreamely nervous. The first contact was finishing and I got an 88. I didn't pay much attention to that in my stress. The next one also signed of with 88 instead of the expected 73. When the third gave me also 88 I asked OM Axel, why don't they use 73, and he explained laughing about love and kisses as my name revealed my gender, hi.
