I am just starting to learn CW, and for practice I have been recording and transcribing repeater identifications that I hear. This is what I heard today:

DE W9KIC/R BBG

What is the meaning of "BBG"?

    $\begingroup$ Hello and welcome to ham.stackexchange.com! Personally I've never heard of a repeater ID using "BBG". Maybe you should ask W9KIC? He lists an email address on qrz.com. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ My guess would be it's either the initials of the club that owns the repeater or a some sort of abbreviation of the city it's in. $\endgroup$

The repeater is in Blacksburg according to an internet search, so BBG is almost definitely an abbreviation of that.
