Not so fast, Jim...

Actually there was a video from a TV show recently where 
a ham sending a message via CW got a message through 
FASTER than a digityal message sent by more modern 
technical means. I am sure many of us saw that.

It was shown on a national televised show. It made me VERY
proud of our wonderful Samuel "F.B." Morse and his simple 
code that has so enriched the lives of countless ten 
thousands of hams!

Yes, morse code won the speed test, and this was within 
the last year or two!
