WELL, with all that said, Do you enjoy trying to listen a cw op with a great or even lousy fist
that does not put enough space between words and some times even between letters?
I have heard some great guys start to get lousy with there fist and also get carried away with
abbreviations where you have to stop and think for a second, "what the heck was that" and by the time your done thinking about it, you don't know what he said.

Who are the space cadets  on 7031 with there winmore digital email station? There is a section in the band for digital ops. I dont want to go out and spend the $2000 bucks to get a modem to
figure out who they are. I did complain on a local traffic net that uses this stuff and they said they would look into it but its still here in southern Ca. My favorite calling frequency is now being jammed by more digital nuts on 7040. Hey, There is a lot of empty space in the digital section, Why not use it??  
Well, I feel a lot better now. Smiley
Happy cw, hope your dx contact does not get jammed by some digital nuts.

I've been a CW op fer many decades and TT and GG still throw me off.  Of course jamming letters and words together is just pure evil !  Not hearing digital email stations here on the east coast ?  Digital ops are where they are supposed to be.

Heard a russian station yesterday calling CQ CQ CQ DE very nicely until he sent his callsign without spacing RA1XYZRA1XYZRA1XYZ.

Still find the EN EN thing strange...

OM Robert
7040 is WSPR frequency
see here: http://g6nhu.co.uk/frequencies.html
these are extremely popular these days as hams leave their stations running on wspr 24/7 qrp to check propagation
even the qcx i'm trying to build (qrp cw rig) has wspr beacon mode
sounds like a steady carrier only there is a very slight variation audible, a very few Hz i think
i think as much of the world has only a narrow 40m band thus the data is low down in the band, starting 7040, same here in vk
here we have exclusive 7000-7040 cw, digital+cw 7040-7060, ssb+cw 7060-7300.
in vk even ssb are using the cw bands and on 80m we only have 35khz cw exclusive and they tried to even cut that in half
on 30m there are many vk using ssb and causing qrm to cw, and they have insisted on using the lower end, not the upper end for ssb.

en oz8agb :-) wait till you hear me run the 5EEE all together like one big error!

Digital Nuts?  Really?  You know there are plenty of CW spaces available, why don't you use them?

7.040 is a good freq to use for talking with eastern Europeans on Pactor.  We still gotta use P3 while they use P4.

I don't think the WSPR folks would at all be happy if Pactor was on 7040, it is still quite broadband P3.
Pactor should be higher up in the band, around 070.
Digital nuts, including Digital CW folks, belong up in the digital section.
As for CW spaces, we can use CW anywhere there is a space, all the way across the entire band.
Interestingly, in this part of the world, at night 40m CW end is FULL of SSB (pirates mostly from Indonesia) but the top end of the SSB band above 7150 is very empty. CW operators would be better off migrating to the top end of the band!

  Thanks Lou, Yes, hearing the WSPR QRM here in Ohio almost 24/7 and digi encroachment is rampant.
  Nothing getting better, must adapt and go on I guess....
