Gamers do it. They have many sites devoted to it. So WHY don't contesters? You will know what I mean, those videos of ace gamers progressing through a level, *videoing* it all and posting those videos online. This http://speeddemosarchive.com/ is the sort of thing that I mean.

Do contesters do it? I mean quality videos that would make a lower than very basic contester (that is me on a good day) sit there with mouth open in pure amazement.

It would be nice to have such a video in a mode that I could at least have a QSO in.

I recall visiting 4Z4BS when I was living in 4X-land. He was speaking to me in Hebrew, also with his wife in Romanian and copying English Morse at the same time. IIRC he is one of the faster CW ops in 4X. Amazing to see.

I have see some YT vids of some chaps similarly adept at CW. It is on my (long) list if things to do...improve my Morse.

I know there is a video of Dan Craig, N6MJ, who most contesters call a "mutant" because he can run CW in both ears simultaneously, also casually texting on his IPhone while he runs SO2R cw.  the guy is incredible.  This is one of the best contesters in the World and is a WRTC defending champ.
