Spratly Island- Island With Many CALLSIGN

The region is also one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. During the 1980s, at least two hundred and seventy ships passed through the Spratly Islands region each day, and currently more than half of the world's supertanker traffic, by tonnage, passes through the region's waters every year. Tanker traffic through the South China Sea is over three times greater than through the Suez Canal and five times more than through the Panama Canal; twenty five percent of the world's crude oil passes through the South China Sea.....

Lets look into Ham Radio activities we can called this Island as one of the ISLAND with many callsign - Spratly Island ….I heard about this island in early 90’s …...

In the world of Radio Hams there are a lot of Islands Hunters....most of the operators who operate
 from the "Sprately Islands" are  foreigners. The writer would like to suggest that the "Administrative" 
should look seriously on the "callsign" why don't we maintain as 9M0S  OR 9M0L    keep it short and simple please try to understand the world of HAM RADIO.
