Then it occurred to me that, duh, the op at the other end is expecting "8," too, so I turned up the speed on that. No problema. Not a single person asked me to repeat the 8. My whole exchange was just a machine-gun-like blur of dits and dahs.
But then the assumption you are in 08 is bad to fall into isn't it if 
you are not as in like my case a 9 lander in Wisconsin,  but in 07,  of 
I sent that lightning fast,  this also would probably go into many logs 
as an 08.

My call is fine and can run fast and together, WB9SBD,  the rythym on CW 
is nice at any speed,  But the club call, I also  have to do the spacing 
W9 space E space T  sent normallt it gets all messed up often especially 
with the appearance of the 1 by 1's W9A
