Initially, when I launched my pursuit of RadioSport excellence project, the LCR intimidated me because my mistakes were boldly laid out in front of me, with its associated cost. I finally dispensed with fear and earnestly started to evaluate my personal performance. My overall pattern at this moment is a dit difference and I'm taking a big hit that is minus 16.2 percent score reduction.
Ignoring an LCR may make the difference between making the Box and not making the Box.
I remember a short lived discussion regarding Morse code rise and fall times including proper weighting of one's electronic keyer. We worked on my weighting issue where it felt like no traction at the keyer. My dits and dahs simply ran into each other. I believe my sending skill has improved as the dits and dahs sound evenly spaced and weighted?
Emphasizing rise and fall times including proper weighting of electronic keyers may help the dit difference.
I understand that RadioSport is a race against the clock. My SH copy of S5 is a matter of Morse code at the word per minute red line. Hopefully, others will recognize an emergent pattern, because it would be fascinating if LCR officials would score an event like an individual report? Perhaps this is already the case and I haven't found the data.
An LCR identifies unique calls, busted calls, and not in the log calls or one's UBN for an event.
My personal challenge is continued practice for example allocating four hours of butt-in-the-chair time during last weekend's Worked All Europe CW event. Admittedly, I enjoyed manually sending a QTC block of 10 calls, because it really pushed my sending skills. Afterwards, I manually loaded each call into N1MM Contest Logger, then pressed into the next block.
Recommend an LCR as a positive feedback loop for measuring one's personal improvement while identifying areas in need of improvement such as busted calls. Lastly, I advocate scoring the entire event like an individual LCR and publishing the report, as a meta UBN analysis.
