Agree with Lee. If you miss the number, there is a good chance you also missed the PREC, and PREC is always the worst thing to ask for a fill on. Half the time the other station thinks you meant CK and sends that again, or sends ? or nothing at all. Alot of times I missed both and was hoping the op on the other end would send both instead of making me ask for PREC separately.

Over the years I've figured out that is often the case, and almost 
always send the fill as NR & PREC...I've even programmed a message 
memory that way.
