To W5UX:

Thanks for the info! I knew the military did some aptitude testing, but never heard any details. Sounds like they were only looking for men who could learn fast.

Practice-practice and more practice, that's the only way. Listen to well sent code, such as W1AW, regardless of it's content.  I've heard hams with atrocious fists send at 20 WPM.  They merge their characters together and have lousy spacing.  Learn to send accurately, speed comes with time.  I won't even answer a CQ sent by an operator with a lousy fist, I've ended QSO's with hams that have been operating CW for longer than I've been alive, and have a terrible fist.  All the latest keyers, paddles and gear won't help these lids, they just need to learn to send CW accurately.
