CW traffic handling: The prosign AA separates the parts of the address. BT separates the adress from the text and the text from the signature. AR marks end of message; this is followed by B if there is another message to follow, by N if this is the only or last message. It is customary to copy the preamble, parts of the address, text and signature on separate lines.
