I don't think that was a case of "stray letters", Barry.  More likely 
not leaving quite enough space between the last L and the following W.  
TN7AT was another case in point.  It's a hard compromise - if you're 
VE3NEA, you don't want your decoder to be too unforgiving of hand-sent 
CW, or even just electronic keyer CW, sent manually - you have to allow 
for some variation in the length of inter-character and inter-word 
spacing, so the question is how much is either too much or too little?
