28 folks out of over a thousand screwed up the  either the "H" or the "B" (or
both).  Sorry, but playing games with timing would likely cause a LOT more

I set my delay so that there is no drop out during sending the exchange -- there
is no leading (or trailing) dit chopping.

Dits are simply bad news when you have seven dits and one dah.  They get lost in
the noise.  Goofy timing tricks would likely be more of a challenge to copy.
