My 2 cents,
Please avoid answer cq calls with speeds over the other side operator abilities. Personally I expect that some day will be able to achieve 26 wpm but up to the moment I feel confortable with 15 wpm, so with an s7-s9 noise floor this kind of situations adds difficulties to the correct exchange numbers and adds an extra delay to the qso completion.
