73 de Randy N8KQ SKCC #8934S
19063 - WA2OXZ - Dave - East Amherst - NY
I would like to participate in contests and CW activities
19064 - KJ6PEH - Brent - Sacramento - CA
request slow qsos
19065 - AD4WL - Gaylon - Paducah - KY
When I first became licensed over 20 years ago, I loved cw ragchews. I have been inactive for many years now and my cw is more than a bit rusty. I look forward to getting back in and enjoying it again.
19066 - VK1FDHA - Dermy - Canberra - AUS
I am learning Morse Code for a couple of months now and have progressed quite well so far. I have had a couple of QSOs with a fellow member of my local club "CRARC" but they were quite forgiving. I am a member of Fists down under which helps me understand the customs and I believe that SKCC may help as well.

some of our members belong to SKCC and we would like to expand our on the air activities.
19069 - KM5TX - Jerry Garcia - SAN ANTONIO - TX
I would like too learn CW, and this is the place to start...
19070 - KG3FOX - Jose - San Antonio - TX
Getting started with Morse. Manual keying is the only real Morse. Using Automatic keys is cheating lol.
19071 - K5EX - Ben - Vicksburg - MS
I hear a lot of nice QSO's among the SKCC members, and would like to extend my base of ham friendships to include the large cadre of SKCC operators.
19072 - NG2G - Mark - Bellingham - WA
No code extra learned CW in April, practicing, practicing, listening to ARRL code practice files and getting ready for regular on-air CW.
19073 - W3AKD - Bill - Lamoine - ME
Would like to get back to strt keying and ragchewing . SKCC provides way to meet hams with similar interest beyond dxing and contesting qsos. Have a J38 that needs some on air time. Would like WAS; SKCC proves an added challenge.
19074 - KI7FUO - Tyler - Lehi - UT
I am 13 years old and just got my general. I have been learning CW for over a year. I would love to get on the air and work SKCC stations.
19075 - KN4FFK - Mike - Williston - FL
I learned morse code in the Army in the 70's. I've only been a ham for about a year, and I want to get started with cw.
19076 - W6RMC - Tim - Petaluma - CA
I enjoy using manual/semi-auto keys (Bug) to conduct my CW QSO's and want to meet others of the same interest.
19077 - KB4GEY - Dick - Fredericksburg - VA
Getting back inti code after 25 year hiatus. Need to learn code agn.
19078 - WB5HLZ - Burns - Wimberley - TX
Improve cw skills
19079 - K5RQI - Mike - Chesterfield - VA
I would love to improve my code skills with others. There is nothing quite like using a straight key without a computer to control the spacing. i have a few keys from WWII and i would love to use them with others on the air.
19080 - KC3FFX - Jim - Warrington - PA
Working on my keying skills with a CQ group who's members all belong to SKCC. So I'm hoping to join to get my own SKCC number. 73, Jim
19081 - F4GOP - F4GOP - La Lande Patry - FRA
je suis beaucoup en cw avec une pioche J-37 sur les fréquence qrs
19082 - EI5AL - Paul - Cork - IRL
only ever used straight key
19083 - KG7YTS - Tony - Tucson - AZ
I am learning CW (for the fifth time) and I realized that in order to succeed in CW, I need to get some real use out of it. I knew that SKCC would help motivate me to get on their air more to chase contacts.
19084 - W8WO - Bob - Middleville - MI
I am renewing my interest in CW and keys. Thank you, Bob
19085 - KA2QOD - Bill - Newton - NJ
I have met a lot of skcc members on the air and sounds very worthwhile to belong
19086 - N9XCK - Dan - Kenosha - WI
I was a big time CW guy but broke my neck in 2008. I have been unable to send code until now. I am starting over trying to teach my hands to send and my brain to copy. I have some brain damage from the accident. CW was a way of life for me and was never into paper chasing, just loved CW. I miss sending with both my straight key and paddle.
19087 - G1YWY - Mark - Castle Cary - ENG
I love Morse Code, and think it should always be sent with a straight key.
19088 - EA5IUY - GARY - Muro De Alcoy, - ESP
In another life (some 40 so years ago) I was an RAF Telegraphist using Straight keys. Although I do use modern paddle keys in my amateur radio QSO´s of today I much prefer the idea of transmitting using traditional keys and can´t wait to get on air with my Vibroplex Bug. (just waiting for my skills set to catch up with me!)
19089 - VK4LL - Finn - Brisbane - AUS
Licensed as an amateur while attending the Maritime College in Copenhagen where I finished as a pro telegraph op back in 1979. Have always valued the hand key above all others.
