A high speed CW guy in our local radio club taught us CW.
He started at 6 wpm for the first few lessons, then used 12 wpm for most of the course, ending at 17 wpm.
All of us learned CW within 9 months, 1 training session per week. Usually we were too lazy to train in between weekly sessions.
This was 1979.
Not sure why to start at 30 wpm. The argument seems to be that high speeds prevent counting dots. I can count dots at 50 wpm and yet I don´t do it..
Why not try and pick a speed that you can handle, and that you are comfortable with, no matter what others say?
