Adding some descriptive term to your call is likely to be acted upon only by those interested in, or with an
understanding of, your term. It just wastes time.
Add "roving" to your call and my response will likely be "so what?"
> When attempting to make a contact on the sats one of the customs is to add "handheld", "portable", etc. to your announced call. Would it make sense to start a new custom of adding "Roving" or "Grid Expedition" or something similar when transmitting from a rare grid. This could alert everyone to let that station have some priority in making contacts during that pass.
