I find six nine instead of sixty-nine much easier to accurately copy on SSB
and best of all it is less syllables.

Why would someone change their check?

Well speaking for myself, sending a check of 69 was generating way too many 
calls for repeats on SSB. So sometime after I got my new call W2LC I changed
check to 96, my "first year licensed" as W2LC. Better than 69 on SSB, still 
meets the rule, and less confusion on whether or not I said 59 or 69.
