I usually split the difference.  If I am CQing at 34 WPM and someone  comes 
back to me at about 20-25 WPM, I usually slow down to around 28 to 30 for  
that Q and QRQ back to 34 WPM on my QRZ.  Almost always, that works  fine.
I have my Page Up and Page Down keys in N1MM to bump the speed up or down  
in 2 WPM increments with each depression.  A quick 3 depresses of Page Down  
gets me from 34 to 28 quickly.

I would assume he can copy  me.

If he can't copy me , why would he call.?

I really enjoy 30  - 40 wpm

If I had to run the contest at 20 wpm, I would  quit.
