My efforts brought the number of "unique" observations down to 1.3 million CW observations.

But I thought CW was supposed to be a dying mode that no one uses any more?

(Nice work on the stats)

I thought I would share a few more stats that computed from the Reverse Beacon Network data that I downloaded yesterday. I was interested to see how many CW operators there are from the different continents and which countries have the greatest number of CW operators and was there any difference in average CW speed.

Thanks, Mike (W9MIC), for your excellent work on this.  I see that my usual sending speed (23 wpm) is average here in the USA, although I pride myself on being able to copy over 99% of the CW that is on the air.

The RBN analysis is quite interesting but it may be skewed by another issue.

RBN only reports stations sending CQ's, not ongoing QSO's.

Even so, it suggests a large DXing community than some thought in other threads.

It suggests that in January of 2014, there were at least 80,000 active DXers, world-wide.  It could easily be double that -- not everyone CQs with any regularity.

Some number of comments back a person replied " your speed determines my speed."  While I can copy 40- 45 WPM in my head, if you call CQ at 15 WPM, if I answer your CQ it will be at roughly the speed you sent it.  I will QRS or QRQ as requested.

X2.. I'll slow down to as low as the other operator is going no matter what the speed. Its just courteous to do that.
