and show your ability to read and key this speed perfectly.
VHSC-Members may give a recommendation to you for VHSC-Membership.

Do NOT fish for a recommendation at the beginning of a QSO.
Just show your capability of solid copy and excellent keying at a speed
of at least 40 wpm. After about 30 minutes you may show your
interest for VHSC-Membership and ask for a recommendation
for VHSC-Membership.

A recommendation may be given after having 2-way-CW contacts
- with a VHSC Member - for at least 30 minutes using telegraphy speed
