I think that means 20 WPM or less.  See message below.  73, John.

Remember that this Wednesday (and Thursday, technically) is the day we 
welcome our CW Academy graduates by slowing down to help them get used 
to the CWTs: https://cwops.org/cwops-tests/ 

There has been a lot of discussion about the exchange that students and 
advisors should use.  According to the above Web page, advisors should 
use "JOE CWA1821", as an example.  One issue with that is not all of our 
advisors are CWops members so they could not include a member number in 
there.  Another suggestion was to use "CWAA" for advisors.  I would 
prefer the latter as it is would be nice to be able to identify students 
or former students separate from advisors.

We are still getting all of the reports back from advisors on the just 
completed semester and it was a busy and productive semester.  We are 
getting a lot positive feedback and I think many students feel like the 
class they took helped them a lot.  We also get a lot of comments from 
students that becoming a CWops member is a big motivation.

Please keep in mind that working with a person who you do not recognize 
and who might be sending "CWA" in their exchange can be a very exciting 
thing for them.  Us advisors are very happy and pleased to hear how 
excited such students are when somebody takes the time and effort to 
work them.

Thanks and have fun!
