On aspect of a call, either short or long, that hasn't been mentioned and 
that I have found to be helpful is its "rhythm". Certain letter 
combinations just seem to flow together in CW better than others. I think 
that's one reason why folks don't have much of a problem with Al's call. It 
is also one of the reasons I chose my new call in 1996.

73 - John, W4AU
