Not related to the above video but to aviation acronyms anyway:

I have always used ...

"WX" for "weather" and
"WXR" for "weather radar".

Sometimes I see "WXR" for "weather". In that context, what's the shortcut for "WXR radar" then?

IDK  ;) if there's a generally agreed-on acronym for weather radar, but I normally use WX-R instead of WXR to avoid confusion.
