Let's keep the government regulators out of contesting please :-)

If a station chooses to send his or her call at 50 wpm or ID once per hour it's their own strategy.  They do whatever they think it works best for them - not for you.   It may help them or hurt them - whatever - but at the end it's their call.

> YES! Garry, NI6T, has allowed our CQP group to use his call several times. We don't send his call at the speed of light. Our club call is W6BX. I insert half spaces in both calls to make it easier to copy. W6JTI mostly works QRP and mostly CW. He carefully inserts half-spaces in his F-key messages. I watched him do it setting up for our team expedition to CM79 for ARRL VHF. GOOD ops who aren't ego-centered do stuff like that.
> A common mistake that EU stations make in DX contests is to bang away at 35+ WPM when conditions are causing lots of flutter over a path. Why is it that these guys think that THEIR signal doesn't have the same flutter at my QTH that mine does at theirs? Did these guys sleep through the fundamental principle of reciprocity?
