It's not only a question of saving time.

It is incredible how many ops missed my last letter "H".
Many of you just copied IK4WM, maybe thinking the last char was not
a letter but the first number of the 599 report.

I was forced to do something to correct that, so I choose to speed up

report just to make clear where the call stopped and where the report

Speaking of cut numbers, I didn't use them.
