John,
    I don't see any way it could be considered a cipher.
    It list your station call, and information which is not "coded" in
the normal sense of the word, and is certainly not enciphered.
    Yes, it is abbreviated, but most will agree it is no more coded than
the common alphabet soup we currently see in daily communications and the
printed media..
    Don't worry about it!
