Is anyone using LTA's "Contest Voice Blaster" voice keyer software? How does
it work and sound?

Operated QRP during SS SSB for:
578Q x 75S = 86,700
No PQ or PR. Never even heard a KP4 and all the VE2s seemed to only answer CQs.
PQ has also been my nemesis in the past. Recommend that someone be assigned
to call CQ from VE2 land in the next SS :-)

Subject: SUMMARY: QSL habits
Thanks to all that sent a reply on my question about QSL habits.
I got more than a dozen answers.
An OVERWHELMING majority sends out QSL cards as replies to incoming
QSL cards, no matter whether or not a station asks for a qsl card
on the air.
As expected, discussions about QSLs during a contest are
not appreciated (and even useless if the answers I got represent
the contest community).
All other behavior schemes do exist but are rather exceptional...
PSE QSL CRD is always interpreted as a request for a QSL card.
PSE QSL is interpreted as a request for QSL in 50% of the cases.
A proposed alternative is PSE UR QSL
BTW, I would have been in category (4) just like 2 others
that do send out cards when requested during the contest qso.
And I would not have interpreted PSE QSL as a request for a
card. (I am far from being a top contester... but I (ab)used
contests for DXCC, WAS, and Province hunting)
