I Rembember in the Early 1950's when in the Military  that our Radio 
Operator on a Weather Recon aircraft used exclusively Cut NR's  however 
They were the expected for the WX information,  When A large number of US 
expect the FULL blown number in and exchange and the cut nr arrives,  Some 
of us scratch our  head, ( I say that because of being Hair Impared) and 
have to ask for a repeat of the number.  CAusing  a loss of time for Both 
Op's in ALL  cases.   The HOT Shot  CW contester has more to loose than 
many  of those who ask for the repeat.
