I'm not a "youth", so forgive me for posting in your forum. It is hard to say precisely what speed I operate in CW. I routinely have ragchew QSO's where I send around 25-30 WPM, but I copy faster speeds. I have had ragchews where the other op was sending at 35 WPM easily, and I certainly miss some words, but I can keep the QSO conversational. I wouldn't want to try ragchewing with someone going faster than that. I often set my computer practice at up to 50 WPM, and I can copy some random words and callsigns. So, I would say I can reliably copy callsigns and exchanges for contests at between 40-50 WPM. Sometimes that requires listening to the other guy send his call a few times to be sure I have it right.
