 I watched the complaints on the packet cluster about very high speed
 contest exchanges and tried a little experiment.  I matched the speed of
 the stations with my keyer and sent my exchange back to them at their speed
 when it was over 35 wpm.  Seven of the ten high speed stations listed could
 not copy at their own speed and asked for repeats.  What is an optimum
 speed setting for a contest with a 7 digit numeric exchange?  Is there less
 confusion of exchanges when alphas are not used except in the 5NN.

I've done the same experiment and had similar results.  Things REALLY get fun
when you reply with an honest RST.
