When they used them all up, they switched to three letter codes, and converted all existing two letter codes to three letters by appending “O”. So if it ends in O, it was originally a two-letter code; if it doesn’t (like SHR) then it was created after the change and it doesn’t have a two-character equivalent.
So to be explicit: that means SH is *not* the two-letter equivalent of SHR; it would be SHO, whatever place that migth be.
