In the mid to late 60s I had a rate meter in the center console of my
station.  It incremented each time I sent the QSL msg.  The full scale was
based on 50 qsos/hr and it reset each 15 minutes to zero.  It was a good
incentive to watch while operating.  There was  a QST cover with big
headlines “40 QSOs per hour for 48 hours” after Vic Clark won the SS again
one year.  Later, I redesigned it to go to 100.
