  In the context of copying serial numbers, I can think of two differences:

  One, numbers are fairly long characters in CW, having five elements ( dots
and/or dashes  )  each, which gives hunt-and-peck typists like me time to
find the (keyboard) keys.

  Two, if the serial number is sent with cut numbers, for example, ANTA,
then I have to do a mental translation from  alpha to numeric while hunting
for the proper keys :-)
