Well, regarding the screen issue.

If you are looking at the screen then you are wasting band time.

Why not learn Braille and put the output under the paddles (after all,
CW contests are supreme!!!!!!) and turn off the VDU and get rid of the
major source of birdies and other RFI.

I find it works fine for me!
