You sir have just committed the ultimate sin of ignorance, assumption and attempted belittlement, combined.
As an “Extra” class license holder, and a CWer for more than 45 years, I will offer without reservation that your need to deliver that tripe is nothing more than an attempt to make you feel better about yourself, and appear as if you are far more “savvy” than you and I both know is the truth!
I am too old for much of what I type to be anything more than a method of bringing up old and fond memories, so (“no brag, just fact”) let me say this:
I have contacted every country on this rock with an available keyer whether they were a national or not. Further, This was done under the classic rules of “…it must all fit inside a toilet paper tube, including battery, except for the antenna and earpiece…”
QSO aknowledgement cards from every (read it slowly) country on this rock!
I can and still regularly cause my high speed twitch muscles to generate 30 WPM…on a straight key. I can “hear” and understand 40 WPM…still.
I can key any random 8 or so word phrase and a rather large community will instantly recognise my “fist” and identify me.
The seemingly uncontrollable need for some to post out of arrogance, ignorance and ego is always sad, but intriguing.
My post was nothing more than an erroneous attempt to toss in a little something light and airy as a distraction from some of the routine intensity.
With the quick and clever mind you so freely give of, please provide me with a URL pointed at a location that will run dits and dahs in both directions as mine for (.)s and (-)es did.
Redeem yourself oh typeby sniper, convince me that you’re not another of the many Eviscerati.
Tell me tales of your early experiences in Cub Scouts and the life-long if even somewhat diminished interest in amateur radio. Tell me of your extremely low wattage conquests. Inform me of the location of your accolades so that I may read them and rejoice in the belief that the ARRL finds you more enlightening than I did.
Is there a moderate degree of eloquence to your post…yes.
Does your syntax suggest you have at least average if not greater intelligence…yes.
At this point, if you have nothing else to add, then I have nothing but compassion and sorrow for you.
Go forth good fellow, but consider that thorough thought ought to preceed running your fingers so rudely.
Just a thought: Why not let this remain between JTR and me? Seems logical.
