GO TO CHANGE CW SETTINGS, MAKE SURE IT IS SET AT YOUR CURRENT SPEED, TAKE OUT ALL LETTERS IN THE LIST OF CHARACTERS EXCEPT E,I,S,H,5,Z,X,/,= (SUBMIT) THEN GO TO CODE GROUPS..WHERE IT SAYS, FIGURES..SCROLL DOWN TO CUSTOM CHARACTERS,AND SELECT IT. SEE HOW YOU DO...I THOUGHT I WAS PRETTY GOOD, BUT NOW I SEE THAT I NEED A LOT MORE WORK..LOL

Tried your challenge today, Bob. Being new at this and going slow I was happy to get 90 percent ok. Great idea to try from time to time.

they are so similar that I made a lot of mistakes. I had a lot of trouble if several dit characters were sent together, and x & / are one dit difference, and always have to take a couple of seconds thinking abt =. but going over just those has helped me a lot. ur score of 90% really great...Bob

Bob, if you make a lot of mistakes then lower the speeed until you can copy without faults. Then work your speed up again by training.

thanks test..just on those characters...they are why i cant get over my hump, i shouldn't miss them, because I know them, but as speed increases to the next step they confuse me and I hit h for 5 or s for h. maybe it is just my fat fingers or dislexic left handed brain.or possibly subconciusly I am still counting the dits and don't realize it. I am sure it is a brain thing I just have to get past somehow..lol

Bob,

yes you know those characters, but they are ahort so you have less time to write / type them compared to longer characters.
So your actual speed capability ma be a bit lower than what you think it is. Don't worry, train them with lower speed, bump the speed up with perserverance. It may take a bit longer than you think but you get over it

ok words of encouragment. we all need them at times, and yours were great. thanks.

Bob,

point is not just to encourage but to let you know that in CW there is no fixed speed.

In a text containing a lot of short characters such as e, s, h etc. the wpm speed is obviously higher thatn in texts with a lot of longer characters such as q, y etc.

What may be your problem is that when encountering a sequence of s, h or or it's simply too fast for you, that is why you need to get speed down until you copy ok. Ignore the displayed speed, take orientation at error rate instead.
