We have that but some old fashioned contesters didn't like humans sharing
these findings over DXC.
Wideband receivers with multiple channel CW decoders makes them panicing.
Internet RX are even worse.
The main difference has become smart random PC freq selection instead of
slowly turning VFO knob.
We pursued these old fashioned ways to the absurd extrems of SO2R
shizophrenia for 48 hours.
We might find better use for our rusting brains than detecting single tone
in 1:3 rhythm.
Enjoy PC games, start with sudoku if you skiped Tetris :-)  Also listen to
awekening ionosphere!
