[SCCC] Copying VERY High Speed CW - Good Advice or Hogwash ??? ( Not Humor )

Check out the LCWO website.  lcwo.net
RUFZXP is excellent, also.
It is one thing to converse at 70 wpm and another to copy callsigns or exchange information at higher speeds.
Unless one can convert speech to code one will have to type the speed desired, or load text and then send it.
I used the TRLOG practice function to increase my code speed to around 50 wpm.
Using RUFZ and the dos program HST I got as high as 83 wpm (my record) copying callsigns.
Just a guess, maybe a two year period on and off.
Fabian, DJ1YFK, designed the LCWO website. He will tell you to practice every day for 30 minutes or
an hour. You, too, can learn to copy 100 wpm. He is over 200 wpm now.

Are these guys just prodigies  ?
( Are their brains just wired most differently from the masses ) 

I assume these guys can only do this with no QRN/QRM etc
I assume also that one has to be able to type dam fast to send at those speeds 

What has helped you increase copying speed

Is just daily practice using Morse Runner and RUFZ etc ....the best way to improve contest exchange copying speed ? 

Has anyone increased their code speed by 10 to 20 WPM or more in a short amount of time and what 
was the method they used ?
