      What about an mobile operator or on vacation?  The grid designator would be necessary because a look up would give only the station QTH.  The power and antenna can be added to the 73 message.

      Well.... I find it easier to look up K2TXB to find out where it is rather
      than looking up BP51ho. A matter of opinion no doubt . Perhaps on JT65/HF
      we should use the same designators as on WSPR.
      Call,Grid,dBm of transmitting station.
