Re: Leading Zeros / Long Dahs


I normally use leading zero only on RTTY because it is easier to click on 001 than 1.
Never on CW, EUro often use leading zero.

It may just be me, but except in some international contests where they are more common, receiving a leading zero or single dah often throws me off, as it did several times in SS CW this weekend.  A leading zero is more likely to confuse than clarify:  I am much more likely to need a repeat of a received number if it includes a leading zero, and I rarely receive a request to repeat the NR when I am in the early phase of a contest and sending single or double-digit numbers with no zero.

Is there any consensus on recommending to new contesters/new N1MM+ users to use, or not to use, them?
