I don’t think there is a cut number for 5. Otherwise, I’m sure it would be used.


I have a friend who’s name is ANN she really has a difficult time being understood

in contests where she has to send her name and RST.

Why people send abbreviated 9 but 5 is not abbreviated?

I am not Vulcan, but there is no logic.

I had 9 stations copy my QTH as NS not NH.
I would think that DX stations would know that N1IX 5NN NS is impossible!!
