Earworm, 07/10/14; Phone Version

Must be phone, if he was CW, he would be Mr. Five by Five by Nine...

Explanation after the break...

In Amateur Radio Speak, "Phone" is voice transmissions.
Transmissions using Morse Code are "CW."
Voice transmission are measured on a scale of one to five for both signal strength and signal clarity or readability.
When using CW, a third measurement for quality of signal is added, "tone" measured from one to nine.  ("Strength" may also be measured from one to nine, although it is not usual in phone.)

Watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer, I always wondered what Faith's call sign was...
