Ah, this explains why I've come across a number of 'ordinary' callsigns calling 'CQ' and just giving sig report & 'next'.

Could they not at least call 'CQ CWO' or something to indicate they're operating contest style & save me wasting my chuffin time.

Most of the CWops special event callsigns self-evidently end in CWO; the members that don't have a SES call *should* be calling CQ CWO.
Can't speak on behalf of any other hams!
(still, at least the event is generating some CW activity outside of the big contests, and I and other members are more than happy to ragchew even during the event)

I've worked loads of the CWO suffix stations .
Bit of fun. Although quite a few certainly rattle the cw along, well above 25. That's no bad thing per se, but it's a bit exclusive. Maybe they think there are plenty of slower ones as well so let's give the faster boys a bit of fun. Reasonable argument , but even so...

When im using G2 CWO CWOPS Station i send at 17 wpm and if anyone calls me at a lower speed i instantly slow down.
but dont speed up when the next station calls me irrespective of there faster speed.

this gives people who are listening and are building up there confidence and competance a chance
to read whats going on and gives them a huge boost if they can read whats being said.
also they may feel that they should give you a call.

DONT BE FRIGHTENED JUST DO IT.
PROPER CW OPS WILL ALWAYS SLOW DOWN FOR YOU.

ITS A GREAT MODE AND FOR SOME A GREAT WALL TO LEARN AND CLIMB.
SO COME ON YOU SPEED MERCHANTS REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE LEARNING CW AND SLOW DOWN PLEASE
