I think we should all use hexidecimal. Or binary :)

Hi Sil, ZL2CIA
In Italy you would write one thousand million watt as 1000 megawatt
or alternatively 1000 MW
In addition the units in Italy are written without plural and to write
megawatts is wrong in Italy but the plural is used in England and USA
In any calculator 1.5 means one and half because the calculators are not
In any calculator 1000000. means one million
I thing that the best for everybody should be to write numbars as any
