Hello, folks. I had a CW QSO with an operator in WA yesterday night. Though keying speed was 22WPM or something like this and was not to be considered fast, I was embarassed when he began sending sentences off the rutine, so-called rubber-stamp fomat. I tried to escape by sending "QRN IS HEAVY AND NO COPY, SRI". (Not QRN, and heavy was the task) How many of you make QSOs like this regularly? I need to write down what is being keyed as the operator sends codes. Decoding, memorizing what were given ealier and to read a sentence must go all together. To add to it, English is my second language. Please share tips to develop the skills with me if you are one of the highly skilled morse operators. Thanks in advance.
