The KHQU Notam appears to possibly contain a non-standard contraction. ILS RWY 10 GP U/S is not listed in the Notam Contractions dictionary AFAIK.

Perhaps it should have been OTS for Out of Service?

Yes, the reason was to align with ICAO terminology.

I thought the weather wasnt bad at the actual time, though it was well before sunrise. I had read that the glide-slope to rwy 10 was Notamed out, well prior. It is a nice runway.

They had been up a good while, what I saw.
