Actually, there is another item that is emerging as important, it's the
overt attempt of the Dual CQers to package the exchanges into a format that
suits their mode.  Faster bursts of CW with empty time in between is exactly
what the goal is.  So even though it seems weird to hear CQ after CQ at 35 -
40wpm with no callers and think - why doesn't he slow down?  You are only
hearing half the story.  The other band could be running well.


And the Q numbers speak for themselves  Its quite clear who most of the dual
CQer skill folks are.  And congrats to them.  An unfortunate side effect of
the their efficiency is the less skilled CW op on the other end trying to
give them a Q.  However, their numbers don't reflect a problem of missing
many Qs - even if they did miss some.
