Hey, guys,

is QRSS really computer generated? Wow, thats the reason all your signals
are keyed thah exactly! I allways sit here and key down (to make things
easier with my left foot) and slowly count to 15 when I send a dot! Same on
receive! I was never sure about the real advantage of Slow CW but I thought
some people can't give or receive faster than that so thats why I used it!

Is the computer generated qrss send/receive mode recognised for DXCC
purposes, also where does xband qso's fit in. For those seeking glory
there could be a disappointment.

Being very close to applying my 136kHz DXCC (only 82 more DXCC countries
needed) I was also very worried about this. Although QRSS is CW and as far
as I know nothing is said about the transmitting speed, nor about what
of 'filtering' is allowed, there might be an 'apparatsik' at the DXCC
who could object my application.
I almost got very depressed by this thought but then I reminded that I
started with LF to do something completely new : to learn something about
new techniques and proagation, far away from the '599 73' QSOs you can
easily have on HF (and with some luck get your DXCC within a week).
So after all I think I can live with the knowledge that I will probably
never get my 136kHz DXCC.<
