Not necessarily. QRQ is poor guys' contesting. Even those guys can be very
good at it, who do not have the chance of accessing stations on competitve
locations to test their skills on-air.

Anti HA3OV is a good answer to this question. He has a two world champ
titles on PED/RUFZ (which is part of the official IARU's High Speed
Telepgraphy Championship, which took place last week), and he's a
magnificent CW pileup operator. I can offer the tape of his 260+ QSO hour I
recorded in E44 to prove this..
