I vote for the chicken. Where else would the egg come from? :-D

I originated the term QRSS many years ago in an e-mail to

The helpful addition of the number to denote the dot length
came much later when slower speeds became popular for
working DX, but I don't know its origin.
I recall a discussion about how to best specify the QRSS speed on the
Lowfer mail list.  This must have been over 5 years ago.  I looked for
the message archives on but the messages prior to 2000 are not
there.  John, W1TAG, was the first I remember to use the QRSS(#) term. 
About the same time Alberto released a new version of Argo or Spectran
which included the QRSS speed.  Also I don't know which came first, the
chicken or the egg.
