    CW Acronyms

    It would be nice to have a "CW acronym guide" thread for such abbreviations as WAG, AWTA etc.. what do you think?

    I think for the majority of them you can google and find what they represent - in saying that I did wonder about why there were so many WAGs being used for a while given a potential double meaning.

    Been suggested umpteen times but never seems to happen for some reason. Can't see why, think it's quite a good idea myself.
