Some are guessable but others not so much.

At the top under Gransnet forums you will see ‘acronyms’ click on it to see all the abbreviations explained.

If the term 'abbreviations' appeared instead of 'acronyms' that would be clear. There have been many requests to GNHQ for this change but all have been ignored.
By the way acronyms and abbreviations are not the same.
Eg NATO and UNESCO are acronyms while DiL and DH are abbreviations!
