[CQ-Contest] cut numbers

I believe this is what differs a very good operator from ...e-e-e-h... the
rest of good operators.
He wants to maximize his QSO total and he quickly adjusts himself to:
a) particular contest;
b) level of activity (huge pile-up, small pile-up or no pile-up);
c) band conditions;
d) type of operation (CQ or S&P).

IMHO there is nothing wrong when someone who manages a pile-up sends "EM3T".
I would understand that it's actually EM30.
But it goes without saying for me that it would be silly to send for
instance "ENNE" at 35 WPM let say on Sunday morning in Stew Perry. :-))
