NOT a high speed CW op here maybe 45 somestimes for contest type info.
I can agree with this OP 110% stop STOP the cut nrs, I have to think
enuff just to get the stuff that is sent correctly then I get a call that
it takes 3 times just tofigure out what the call is because he is going 60
wpm and then T N T for a number ?? I'm guilty of using O O for
leading O25 and always 5NN and sometimes 1OO5 if I manage to get that
NO MORE CUT NUMBERS IS OK WITH ME.
