CW Skimmer is a great development well merged with modern SDR technology! I
am surprised that speech recognition technology is NOT applied to hamradio
contesting. We use limited vocabulary of ten numbers and 26 letters with
international spelling and even 1990's programms would be good for that. I
can only remember unfortunate attemps of terrible sounding callers callsign
concatenations and robot sounding serial numbers apart from prerecorded
overall (CQ) phrases.
At the end of contest we must supply Cabrillo log and some typing releif of
my two fingers during 48 hours would be most welcome.
K1TN OF theoreme doesn't hold with even more agresive increase of RTTY
contesters. It is definitely better and cheaper technology!
