    I've never come across that type of error, except for an error in sending but not the same over and over. Wonder how a computer reader, reads that?

    It's not a fist issue. It's a computer operator issue.

    As for a "fist" issue, IMHO the fist thing has always been a straight key issue.

    Recently looking over my earliest QSL cards from 1969, 70, etc. the best awards I was ever to get as a ham were the "FB fist" comments written on the cards.

    Nothing since will ever approach that.

    Thanks for the topic.

    73, Mike

    I would have neither time nor patience for anyone that would use a computer to do CW. It's a huge disrespect to those who have put in the time and effort to learn and become proficient at it.

    There are proficient guys who are stuck using a computer due to disabilities, too.

    I should have taken a video instead of the picture I used for my avatar. There is at least one very legitimate reason to use a computer for CW.
