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.
...aaand in that same document, exactly on page 58,
is being translated with "ich habe Ihre Sendung vollständig aufgenommen" ("I have copied all of your message").
,,Es ist nicht ihr Ziel, der unendlichen Weisheit eine Tuer zu oeffnen, sondern eine Grenze
zu setzen dem undendlichen Intum''
Too many Kens and Karens on CW these days....
Ein bisschen ironisch--Faehle im Buchstaben - - -Es soll ,,Irrtum'' sein.
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.
zombie Rrrrrrrrr thread
Back in the old CW weak signal VHF/UHF days, three Rs were used a lot for confirmation.
