  1. Excellent! No waterfalls, streaming, firmware updates or re-boots required and there's still Drakes in shacks. Wonder how many 7300's will still be operational in another 60 years? They don't make'em like they used to.

  3. 60 wpm CW is mind boggling to me!

  4. 60wpm is (super-)humanly workable. My first CW tutor (1967 Napier NZ) was ZL2AFZ, George Studd, an ex-Post (& Telegraph or Office, take your pick) telegrapher, and he could work greater. He could converse by CW simultaneous to a vocal conversation on a different topic! and at one 5-character word per second that's faster than most can write - OR SPEAK!
