    "Slashed Zero" - distinguishes a ZERO from the letter "O". Intended to
    resolve ambiguity in callsigns like ""W0OF". Not needed for callsigns like "W0RK". Can be produced by pressing Alt-216 () on your PC keyboard
    (Note: you must use the numeric keypad, not the numbers across the top row
    of the keyboard. This method should work in most PC-based editors such as e-mail clients, word processors, etc.)
