Back in 1979  JA3ODC had a 480 / hour rate in CQWW SSB.  I don't believe 
anyone has ever exceeded this rate, although N5TJ tied it in the 2004 CQ WW

I have a question for old time contesters.  Before the Internet,  packet
radio, DX clusters and skimmers, what were typical CW and SSB contest 
rates?  I imagine they must have been much less than current  ones.
