Well, you gotta save somewhere.
As far as using cut numbers, the rule I was taught was to use them only in  
unambiguous situations, where only numbers could possibly be  used.  This 
makes them OK for serial numbers, but whether they should  be used is another 
matter.  I never fail to get discombobulated when I get  one thrown at me. 
I can live without them happily ever after.

Hi  Kermit

It has always puzzled me why some stations use a big, long call  like 
that, and then use cut numbers for the exchange :-)  73
