Why not to use Cut Numbers?
It's more exciting, require quick reflexs, and you spent less time for
So, resolutely.....YES to cut numbers.
If during a contest at just your QRL someone request: "QRL?" meanwhile your
correspondent is sending your RST+Number,
What are you doing?
1.- Replay: "YES, QRL de xxxxx"
2.- Don't replay, so in few msec this new station will start to send CQ
3.- Replay: "C"
Obviously.... 3.- Isn't it?
If 1.- you are losting too much time, and you'll request your correspondent
to TX again your Nr.
If 2.- maybe similar than 1.- is this new station blocks him, plus you must
TX: "PSE QSY QRL"
So why are we using those tricks during contesting and no CUT NUMBERS?
After some contests, this method is easy to be handler....
This is just my opinion.
