I was looking for a QSO on 40 in the CW section. I came across someone calling CQ and listened. Good signal, S9 or so. No QRM or QRN it was nice. But....I struggled to read the operator's code. They were drawing out the elements to the extent that they made no sense, was it an A then an E or was it an R ? Couldn't tell - the spacing was inconsistent and not right for either possibility. CW Morse code isn't like Jazz with a lot of room for personal phrasing. Its more like an alphabet. If you are so cute with your written letters that an A looks like an R then you are not communicating. You might be having a great time putting ink to paper but anyone reading your text will struggle. I will qualify this in case the op had a physical handicap...but I don't think it was that, the gear, the keyers, mechanical or electronic, shouldn't sound like that. I told them their "Fist" was difficult for me. "What's a fist?" they ask. Its hundred year old slang for sending style. In the Navy when we intercepted foreign CW signals we got to know the operators by their "fists". Many were unique, none were unintelligible. It wasn't an insult friend, it was tough love. I never want to drive anyone from the low end of the band. Its thinning out fast enough as it is.
