1) The cut number for zero is a T. It should never be used in a
call sign. It has relevance in CW contests and occasionally in
QSOs but, in my opinion, all cut numbers should be used sparingly.
2) You have hit upon a universal error. What you hear on the air
for a hyphen (dash) is dah-di-di-di-dah. That is incorrect
because, as you rightly state, it is actually an equals sign. The
correct prosign for a hyphen (dash) is dah-di-di-di-di-dah which
no one knows or uses except a few old timers who teach Morse Code

Just getting active on-air
and have questions:
1) I've heard that 'T' can
be used in place of the number 0; is this true? Thats part
of my calls and want to be sure.
2) I hear the code for the
'=' sign (-...-) fairly often and wonder if it's also used
for something else? It seems odd I'd hear it so much.
Thanks. Good to be getting
