People sending fast are ones I won’t answer. Most have a bad fist and run the characters of their call together. Many times I’ve heard the same person blazing away and get an answer.

My philosophy has always been to call CQ at around 25 wpm (my comfortable sending speed) and if someone answers me at a slower speed I'll return at or very close to that persons speed and unless they tell me it's OK to send faster, I'll stay at their speed. I think that's one of the items in the Amateur's Code of Conduct as published by the ARRL anyway.
Anybody hears me on the air and needs me to send slower, all ya gotta do is ask me to QRS (if'n ya don't know it, that's the "Q" signal for please send slower - LOL. Of course, I can go faster too. I don't have one anymore but I'm on of the original members of the Keyboard CW crowd from back in the late 1960's. W9TO (of TO Keyer fame) and a number of us used to hang out on 3518 KHz running 55-65 wpm on stand-alone keyboard keyers back in the day. There were a number of articles in QST, CQ and 73 magazine on how to build them before HAL and Heathkit started offering them for sale.

Ok Guys, and thanks. It will be fun and there will be some ops running 25-30 wpm in the logbook also.
We just try to accommodate the speed and get ops on the air.
