I had no idea until I started following AA0HW's blog that QRQ CW had such a history. My previous efforts were aimed at enjoying CW and working on my 40 wpm code proficiency sticker by copying the W1AW Qualifying Runs each month. I was really unaware of operators carrying on ragchews at 70 wpm. I wonder if it would be worth while writing an article for QST about QRQ CW?

ARRL Northwestern Division Director Greg Milnes, W7OZ.

Lewis is one of the CCE program's pioneer mentor/instructors,
Miller said. "Harry spends much of his day responding to students,
reviewing their activities and drawing upon a lifetime of learning to
assure the best learning experience for every student, regardless
of what the course topic is," he commented.
"In addition to the ARRL Emergency Communications courses,
he actively mentors nearly all of our technical courses."

Harry holds the
CW record of over 75 WPM. They claimed "he had an error in the text with an
extra "e". He challenged them and they found an extra e (a dit) in the text.
Detecting an extra dit in text at 75 WPM is incredible. k7gco
