To (slightly mis-)quote the photographer Fred Picker, "They're good
enough for the people who use them."
I played around with the Morse copying feature of my PK232DSP just for
fun a couple times. I wasn't too impressed. It did OK but I could copy
far better than it could.
I worked a DX station a week ago who was using a hand key (remember
them?) I would bet a CW decoding machine would lose it trying to
decode that. But again, I copied OK. Even when the dits and dahs were
almost the same length.
