Yes, that is a good question. 18 wheelers have been using -14
for nearly 15 years. If you are an 18 wheeler and are proud of
it, then why not use the -14 that all the other professionals
are using.? It makes it easy to pick out the pros in the list
and try to make a QSO.

I don't know where you have been, but just about everyone uses
-9 for their primary mobile and -7 for their HT. This has
nothing to do about ICONS. It is choosing an SSID CALLSIGN that
gives some recognition to that callsign-SSID combination when it
appears in lists.
