Hello again,
I am working 40 meters QRP with my little OHR 100A. It is tuned to the 7.030Mhz region and I notice that everyone in that vicinity sends code rather quickly, my speed is in the 10WPM region. Is this the right place to be? Is there a place where slow speed QRP is better suited?
Thanks for the advice in advance.

Anywhere on the band is the place to be, hi hi.  

Just send your CQ's or at least answer a CQ, and 99% of the ops will drop down to your speed.

  Check around 7.040 for U.S. stations and 7.060 for DX stations.These are the QRP calling frequencies.Stations answering will slow down and match your calling speed

What the above posts say is true. Best thing to do, particularly if you are new to qrp is to
respond to a CQ (as opposed to calling) and the op will typically match your speed. Hopefully
not too close though (to encourage you to speed up Smiley )
