     Like some others, I got caught on 20M too long and didn't pay
attention to the rate meter when it went down to the 30's.  This time
I tried setting up the 2 vfo's about 5kc apart and toggled back and
forth after each Q - first trying to find a Q that was just ending and
if that didn't materialize, calling cq  on a clear(?) freq.

Had some 10 q rates of 95, but couldn't maintain that.

I don't think my trouble is winning pile-ups--I don't know what my
trouble is.

Used 36 wpm to try to gain some time that I would waste in other

Starting to prelog next q in and advance number that the station I was
intending to work next ( ha) by one.  Still in habit of hitting insert
key when in the mode of being the contact initiator (guy calling cq).
This puts my call at the end of the q instead of in the beginning.  I
got into the habit of hitting the escape key after the other station's
call was sent and then hitting the proper "F" key with the correct info

This is a 40 q improvement from last time.  Where the hell do I get the
next 40?

Danny, don't feel bad.  I called K7SV Dan and copied K7SS until
corrected.  Not good for either rate.
