I know there is a thread on handles, but thought it would be a good resource if we got al lthe members to list the numbers that you call out when DX is rollin. Who knows? maybe you didn't even know you had talked to a member!

They call me 870 Land O' Lincoln Right around Chi-Town here

Also there is "The DX Directory" which is pretty much "the phone book" of who's who.
