I heard frequent repeat requests in my short WPX CW time spent.

One station was sending a whacko cut number combination that caused others problem, so I decided to try a little experiment.

Hey...those who send cut #'s *should* be able to copy them, right?

Instead of sending 599 91, I sent 5NN NA (latter being a "cut number" for 91).

Guess who made at least 3 requests for a repeat of my number?

OK...I finally gave in and sent 5NN 91.  

IMHO, get rid of any cut numbers other than "T" for Zero after the infamous 5NN.
