COMMON TEXTS FOR FREQUENT MESSAGES

These originating stations send out large numbers of messages with common texts. It pays to keep a copy of this help file handy so you can avoid having the texts repeatedly sent to you. In some cases, the sender has more than one common text, and these are indicated by the CK count. Messages from W1PEX and NM1K also have variable signatures. Please confirm the signature when receiving those messages. If you see any new bulk mail messages circulating on the nets, let us know and we will add them to this list.
