From the blog:

Quote
I was curious to find out just how many sloppy ambiguous Morse words there are in the English language.

It turns out there are quite a lot more than I thought! In fact, there are so many that I’ve made a separate results page for all the 25,787 ambiguous words. This is made of 10,330 distinct Morse strings. The highest frequency ambiguous Morse word has 13 possible donor words.

Someone needs a life!

The most common runtogethers I hear are callsign prefixes. Is dit-dit-dt-dah-dit a VE or SN? Many hams do a particularly poor job of sending their own call, maybe they are bored of sending it the correct way? I think its similar to how hams on phone like to invent cutesy nonstandard phonetics for their own call.

  Speaking of Non-Standard Phonetics, I generally make it my personal mission to answer the CQ calls of those Kilo Watt #abc's with KW*###??? It always throws them dumbstruck, I love it!
In otherwords, "here, I'm answering your call in precisely the wrong way you just sent it", QSL?

I can say after working CW about 95% of the time for almost 60 years, (year short of that & 4 years of that in the military service as an op) I have discovered that having a call sign that ends in a dit or one that has like a B and 6 after it is difficult for most CW ops to copy in contests. Sorry not the fist, those CQs are sent out with an automatic keyer. One of my ex calls was WB6GBR. Terrible in contests. If someone answers my CQ and accidently missed a letter or number that is fine I will slow down for them. If someone comes back abusing my call I don't respond. This is my hobby, I love to copy CW, somehow I don't see humor in abusing anyones call. JMHO because I am old and grumpy.  Grin

On SSB alternative phonetics are useful, particularly when accents and band conditions get in the way. I know Lima, Echo and Papa give quite a few folk trouble. That said, Kilowatt isn't the best of alternatives, but then Kilo generally cuts through better than some.

CW, on the other hand, doesn't need phonetics, but characters with multiple trailing dits are high in my list of ones often mis-read...
