Yes. In Thursday night's practice, at least three stations had very bad
CW notes. One cleaned his up immediately after I told him about it.
The other two, unfortunately, were S&P and I never got a chance to QSO
them and tell them about their notes. I hope one of their contacts did
so. Also, not only are the practices a good time to check everything
out beforehand, but they are a fun half hour. 73, John, K4BAI.
