Okay Mike... great idea... I was going to jump in line behind you and grab the 
letter "E" but I see Paul, VO1HE snapped it up before I could. See... these new 
cut data blocks ARE effective at speeding things along!

So... what's a guy to do?

I'm registering the inter-element space for my callsign. So if you don't hear 
anything calling you, it's probably me.

Then I believe it will be the responsibility of the ARRL to publish the
official cut list so that all may have an opportunity to convert what is
sent to what should have been sent.

Punishing a station for copying what is sent is just wrong whether you or
the ARRL dictates it or not!  How is a casual op supposed to know all the
cut number abbreviations?  Wouldn't it be easier for the ARRL and log
checkers to include the possible translations in the log checking routine?

I think the ARRL is completely wrong on this one.

I am making it official that T is now the cut abbreviation for W0MU.  I will
be registering it with all appropriate registration entities.  I guess I
will have to send my call at least once every 10 mins for FCC regs but other
than that if you hear T calling it is me.
