Have funny phonetics for your call sign? Paul, NR3P, does. He goes by “Now Roasting 3 Pigs” on the air and wanted it visualized on his QSL.
His idea was to have three Angry Birds-style porkers on a spit, being rotated over simmering vacuum tubes. It’s the kind of image we cartoonists love to draw. I was only too happy to oblige.
One part of his QSL commission puzzled me, though: Paul wanted an alligator dressed to the nines doing the cooking.
So I asked him: Why a gator?
Paul explained that because hams benefit from propagation, he wanted the cooking done by a “proper gator.”
I’ll let you supply the rimshot.
