Steve, I could copy you fine but I'm used to copying the irregular "swing" of bug and cootie ops. We all tend to have that to some degree. Although, I've had a couple of QSO's with cootie ops that I would swear where using a keyer. Recordings are a great way to hear what you "really" sound like. Most ops are too polite to let you know you have issues sending. I give my students honest constructive feedback in class so they will become aware of and correct any issues they may be having with sending. If I encounter a bad fist on the air I will sometimes send them an email to offer feedback and advice.
If it wasn't for Dit there would be no Dah !
