    As of this morning, it's on sale... "50% off Canvas Art" so $10.99.

    According to the three reviews, it did have the incorrect code for F, but was fixed.

    I think it's a nice idea to show visitors or family if they ask about the phonetics used.

    Can you whistle 30-40 WPM ?? :p
    I haven't learned CW yet. Have tried some apps on the phone and a short
    session with some suggested websites. Of course, it takes practice everyday
    as I am told. ;)

    I can whistle 30 yes. No faster via "whistling" though. I can't send much faster than 40 on paddles - not that it matters much except in big contests with simpler exchanges. Sure - I could program my contest keyer to send faster than that but why? I mean if I can't copy the reply, what's the point?

    My comfort zone for ragchew is about 24-26, normal contesting 26-35 or so - and for big contests, again with simpler exchanges like NAQP etc., I can do over 40 although I don't much prefer it. To me, it's "work" at that point, and takes a few passes to get the copy correct. Not fun.
