It seems to me that if the software is properly doing it's work,
it should automatically know when to un-cut the numbers.

For example, if you get a call from N0NR and type TX as the state,
the software should automagically accept the TX.

If you get a call from G3ABC with ATN as the serial number
exchange, you should be able to type "G3ABC ATN" and have the
software automagically translate this to "G3ABC 109".  This is NOT
rocket science.
