Congrats on practicing your head copy for qrq cw there Bill !
We have several fantastic methods that we have found to increase qrq copy to the max.
There are a few articles on this site about that too. The RufZ word list training I have found to me an absolute must for efficient and effective qrq training in addition to the other practice methods. There is a linux program called "qrq" ( new beta version 2.0 ) that is even better than RufZ for random word training.

Keep up the great work there Bill and watch your qrq cw head copy skyrocket !
