Thread: punctuation

Question marks are important.... other than that.. I've read that in CW most punctuation is not used. Are "@" or "=" or "/" used much.
On the other hand.... if you don't know everything... you'll get hung up on a character that goes zipping by and you don't recognize.

/ is pretty common in callsigns such as SP/DJ1YFK or W1AW/0

= is widely used in QSOs as the equivalent of a fullstop or a comma

. and , are rarely used in "standard QSOs", but sometimes in rag chewing

@ is very, very rarely used on the air.

Is it worth adding to Custom, punctuations, and punctuation + figures?

Usually I do it via changing the Cw_settings temporarily - but after 40 years of command line W entry I'm getting lazy like many Windoze users and like mouse clicking. LOL
