In this years ARRL CW I received a report including "enn" - and trying 
to answer in the same language I replied "tu enn 7e" as I chose my power 
as 75 Watts - he  requested a repeat three times and failed nevertheless 
with me sending at less than 30 wpm. In the fifth over I sent "5nn 75" 
and he got it. What sounds cool for the perhaps only very few able to do 
it might not stand reality. Did the consequent "a" and "e" users check 
their UBN reports  for effects of cut numbers other than "n" or "t"? At 
least for sunday afternoons it seems IMHO as helpful as calling CQ with 
40 wpm for minutes without reply.
But of course YMMV.
73, Chris
