I know he later went on to make many models of his own.. but what did he use to set the world record of 75.2 WPM?

Thanks!

He didn't,

The record was for receiving, not sending.

I keep forgetting that these world records don't include sending ability. I'll start a new thread for that one.

Thanks guys!
