Contemporary Usage in Amateur Radio
Today, Amateur Radio Operators still use codes 73 and 88 profusely and –30– is used in journalism. Radio-amateurs also occationally use the code 99 for "Go to Hell", though this may be their own addition to the code-table. The other codes have mostly fallen into disuse.[2]
