One of the best calls I've heard with good rhythm also has a lot of  dits, 
but still flows nicely and is easy to copy: K3EST

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.  
is also one of the reasons I chose my new call in 1996.
