I see what you did there
Yes, I would agree
When I hear some lid sending dit dit dit dit dit dah for the 4 in his call sign like I did today I don't bother replying to his CQ.
He was consistently making the same mistake so I assume he was using a memory keyer.
And again, I rant, ( ) if you cannot program your OWN CALL SIGN CORRECTLY INTO THE KEYER, you should NOT be trying to have a conversation on the air using Morse Code.
I too would not reply - just for the practical reason that I know he's not going to "hear a word I say" - only what his FLdigi program spits out or whatever
P%OBABLY THA_ MHJ THING. I HAD MNE OF THOIE. IT WASNT EVE■ THIS GUD.
When I was a Novice in the early 1970s, more than one station asked what kind of keyer I was using. I was using a straight key. I can thank my retired Navy Radioman for teaching me to send PERFECT Morse. He let me call him 'dad'.
vy 73 es gl,
Would "know coders" make that mistake?
With a straight key, I use my left hand. With a keyer or bug, I use my right hand. That makes it very easy to switch between them. At about 20-25 wpm, I did that between words and characters on Straight Key Night. Fun!

Ambidextrous CW...there should be an award for that.
