I found the same problem when setting the speed in the 70-80
WPM range. My brain just stops working after a while. Going
slower (60-66 WPM) gives me much steadier runs till the end, and
most importantly, copying calls correctly the first time, which gives
higher QSO totals in the long run.
Regarding the max. QSO total, I think I"m close to my l;imit, as I
can't type any faster. If DEFINEKEY worked in PED and I could
move that + key over to ; or ' that would help.
