How do the word and callsign training scores work? I can't figure out any sensible logic from watching them, but there must be some logic there.
Presumably speed figures. Presumably accuracy is also a part of it. What about the number of times a word or callsign is repeated?

Still going strong. Very good.
As far as I know the score of a complete correct word is speed times length. Not complete correct: nothing at all.
When you want topscores go ovet to German language they need more characters then English speaking people to say the same thing.
I expect calls to be the same, but I am not so interested in calls. I did some rufzxp in the past, but copy calls is more for contesters. I don't like contesting at all, I am eager in rag chewing and my goal is that hardly anybody or nearly nobody has to go QRS in order to meet me for a conversation.

Folk tend to send their callsigns more fluently (and therefore, often, faster) than other things, and I was missing too many, and I couldn't get rufzxp to work on my system...
It'd be nice if the repeat count affected the score, I think. as getting the callsign at first go and getting it after 17 repeats are obviously different levels of proficiency. I guess a time taken component in the score would reflect repeats just as well, though. Not that the score actually matters, really. I'm much more interested simply in whether I got the call correct or not. I often miss the first sending of the next call because I'm trying to work out what I got wrong in the previous one, and why. It would be nice to have the same sort of red/green characters as the Koch tests generate.
