Zack. You are not the first to do that! In my case it is usually somewhat
different viz dit-dit-dit-dit-dit! Also when my middle finger is poised over
the <ENTER> key, I can send unbroken CQs! My best guess is that it is
virtually an instantaneous process, and you have been asleep only a few mS.
I can also recall apparently waking up having fallen asleep as I was
receiving my exchange. I had no recollection of hearing it, but was able to
get it into the keyboard nevertheless. What that's all about I have no idea!
Can we really copy CW when we are asleep?
