How about instant callsign identification between Flex 6000 series users. The radio sends out a sub audible ident on transmit, the receiver detects and puts a small flag against the signal on the panadapter giving station ident

I thought about this a couple of years back -- the idea was to encode the callsign in phase information which is not really useful in sideband.  It's a fun project we may look into at some point.  Subaudible tones could also work, but would be called out by operators that can hear them in their passband ("hey, you have some low frequency tones in your signal -- do you have a power supply problem?")
