Are you putting the waterfall cursor over the signal display in the waterfall? You can get rid of the white noise on the CQ100 by clicking on the squelch button. Also, if copy with FLDigi is not perfect, it could mean that the CW being sent isn't perfect either. You can also download a program called CWCom. There are two news channels in CW that you can use FLDigi to decode. Of course, this is a little redundant, since CWCom already prints out what is being sent.
You can also google W7TTY internet TTY and using Windows Media Player listen to RTTY news feeds that others email in to a queue. FLDigi does a great jpb copying this. Use RTTY-45 and REV. Just use this address in media Player:
Kind of fun to have this running in the background, while you are doing something else. FLDigi also will create a save a file for all received information. Each session, new data is just appended to the file.
Configure/User Interface/Misc/Text Capture/ then checkmark Enable RX Text Stream.
