A great program for Linux.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I am working on building speed on CW mostly to be able to work the DX that comes zooming in at higher speeds. A lot of folks are using RufzXP as a speed trainer and it's an excellent product but only available for Windows. After some searching I found QRQ and found that it's modeled after Rufz, i.e. does the same thing. I've downloaded it to my Ubuntu Linux machine in the shack and my Mac laptop. This is an excellent program set up to be almost game like, complete with scores, and a superb speed trainer. Basically, like Rufz, you get 50 call signs, one at a time to copy and enter in the computer. Each correct answer raises the speed 2 WPM, each miss lowers it. After 50 you get a score and it shows the ones you missed. If you don't have a windows machine, check this out. I'll be using this regularly! Thanks to the maintainer of this program.
