[amsat-bb] Operating practice on (mostly) FM sats

While we're at it talking about the AO-51 craziness at times (5 am
passes are quite pleasant) I'd like to bring up another thing that 
constantly gets me which is not using phonetics for call signs. Just
because it is a FM satellite doesn't mean everybody is clearly
understandable and it makes it more difficult to copy calls. Why not 
just use phonetics to begin with and make it easier for everybody to
work stations?

Just an idea. Comments welcome.
