Good Enuff,  but also  put  the word out tht NR is not necessary 
information.   Or  for that matter sending  K7QQ de K0RC 5NN  NR 007 5NN NR 
007  K7QQ de K0RC  KN

For many of the newer Ops the  5NN is the same as NR,  a signal to get ready 
to copy  ATTE, only he the sender is gonna have to repeat it as 1005 to get 
me to copy it.

We only have ourselves to blame for turning the RST into a synch pulse 
instead of anything useful. I have been going over my old contest logs from 
the '60s and '70s and find the RST reports were "honest" reports, not an 
endless column of 599's.
