Gary, I agree 100%.  Field Day CW is slow and grueling, but steady.  I know
I had some 50+/hour rates (both 15 and 20 CW, I didn't get a chance to try
40 CW), but I agree, more than 1/minute is tough to sustain.  Especially
with all the repeats, extra callsigns sent, etc.  I'll post our breakdown
sheet when I get a copy of it.
