[CQ-Contest] Cut Number "J" - ASSISTED or MULTI?

Seems to me that the 5nnjtt station either isn't set up with a paddle  
or didn't realize how ineffective jtt is as a cut number.

If you keep getting asked for fills, your cut numbers aren't working.  
And it likely indicates you're in for some busted Qs particularly if  
some people decide to just log what was sent, no matter how  
incomprehensible what was sent really was.
