    use to be up to 15 or 20 wpm... but then got involved with something called the "College application proccess" haha... Im down to about 10 or so wpm working my way back up.... My best advice, when copying code, start to learn to lag behind characters, and increase the lag everyso often, this will teach you to "Blackboard" it (Maybe whiteboard it nowdays, you know, dry earse markers???) and you will learn to copy it without wrighting it down! once you reach a certian speed you'll hear syllables and words, not letters...

    Transmitting about 60 WpM, receiving plain text up to about 100 WpM, single callsigns (RufzXP) normally up to 150 WpM, in peaks up to 200 WpM.

    I started working CW on the bands after my 12 WpM exam in March 1998. By June I was up to 25 WpM, by the end of the year up to 40 WpM. Receicing speed quickly went higher, but for transmitting, there is a "plateau" around 40 WpM where I was stuck for quite a while, maybe a year, before it finally increased noticeably. There were other plateaus earlier, around 15 WpM, but that one was for receiving.

    Daily practice is the key to success. Making up a lot of excuses is not. Judging by the time some people spend posting on qrz.com, everyone should be able to take 5 minutes a day for code practice.
