  • Don't worry, you'll be hammering out 30 in no time at all. Once upon a time, I could send 35 and receive 60, but something has slowed way down somewhere between my ears and my fingers. Ha.

    I too could send and receive at a pretty good clip way back when, but never those speeds Arley. I've been reading up on folks like you that can copy 60. This guy does it with both hands at 50 WPM... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_icJLmsFNU

    In fairness to Arley for "only" being able to send at 30 WPM, very few people can send Morse code faster than 30 WPM on a straight key. Mechanical and electronic keyers have certainly sped things up to the 60+ WPM range he speaks of.
