I am wondering about the meaning of effective speed. When I do code groups, I have it set at 18 wpm character speed and 10 wpm effective speed. Am I copying code at 18 wpm or 10 wpm? How should the ratio between character and effective speeds be changed as I go faster? Thank you. Larry

if you use 18 wpm character speed and 10 wpm effective speed, the single characters are sent at 18wpm but the spaces are longer than usual, so effectively you're hearing about 18 wpm.
This makes it possible to learn the characters at a reasonable speed, where they have some sort of rhythm, while not stressing you out too much while typing or writing them down.
The goal should be to have the same values for effective and character speed at some point, but take it easy...
