Related many years ago by Diane Ritt, Assistant Airport Manager at Antrim County Airport:
"Charlevoix Unicom, Charlevoix Unicom, this is Cherokee [Something] Xray. What are your winds and active?"
"Cherokee [Something] Xray, the winds are out of the east at five, active runway is zero nine."
"Charlevoix, I'm out here by the cement plant, and it looks like the winds are out of the northwest."
"Cherokee [Something] Xray, are you landing at Charlevoix or landing at the cement plant?"
