but now we are in the realm of manufacturing callsigns
i though bruce was promoting the idea that they were globally assigned and 
unique. fine i accept that i can make them up (and indeed i have).

i was just really pointing out that the myth world extends beyond the US and 
that assumptions about how things work there need to be augmented and 
enhanced with non-US experiences.

and as they sometimes say: "we now return to our regular programming"
