HI Andy

I think one thing that makes it really slow is that most PSK op's that 
I've worked just send canned macro's back and forth.  You ask a question 
and you get rig, QSL route, grid square, date and time, etc, etc.  It 
was the same on FD.

All they need to send is '5A OR', but you get a brag tape and everything 
else along with the exchange.

I don't know if there is a PSK reflector, like this one for RTTY,, but 
if so, it would be good to educate some of these op's on how to operate 
a contest with PSK.  73
