    I have found a German-speaking source (page 58 and around in the PDF) that mentions all cu, cul, cuagn as early as 1931. In that case, I am in defense of tradition.

    By the way, here "lb" stands for "lieber" ("dear") instead of the "lbr" I've picked up in actual operation.

    The beauty of CW lies in its internationally known standards. Think of the formalities as if they were the headers and appendices of packets, like the internet protocol. All that goes between these can be as fun as anyone wants. And the abbreviations serve to have that fun much quicker, like compressing images (you do remember '90s Internet, don't you?).
    I may be new, but I know I'm right here.

    Back in the old CW weak signal VHF/UHF days, three Rs were used a lot for confirmation.
