N6NQZ - When sending your SKCC number in the sprint, send the numbers in full Morse without using shortcuts - often referred to as "cut numbers". Common cut numbers are: "A" for 1 "U" for 2 "E" for 5 "N" for 6 "D" for 7 "N" for 9 ...

Just saw you message, Steve... Can you be a bit more specific, please. If you listen to CW QSOs you will find many people beaking thoughts/sentences with a BK (dah-di-di-di-dah). You will also sometimes hear someone using a BREAK to quickly transfer the QSO back to the other op. This is sent as a BK...

Steve - All good topics and it's GREAT that you're thinking and asking. You need to find yourself a good Morse Elmer and address the issues of on-air procedures one-on-one with your Elmer. I'm honestly not sure what the "dialing off frequency" comment refers to - perhaps you can explain a ...

Nice pictures, Craig - It's difficult to get a picture of a whole station and have the front panel display with the right contrast and detail.

You could get hundreds of replies, all different, to an open-ended question like this. For me, I have an old J-38 from the mid-60s that still works well. Many of these keys are available at Hamfests or via eBay. I also like the Navy Flameproof key and have been very happy with the Czech Army key cur...

Sounds good Craig... I've never found a need to oil any parts of the FP key and would wait to hear from a couple others before doing so. I has a Navy career myself, 1966-1986, but was not a Radio Operator. I started as an Electronics Technician maintenance-type but ended as a Computer Programmer. I ...

Craig - Still looking forward to the first on-air QSO.

I echo Randy's comments re the Navy Flameproof key. I love both of mine. I've also recently acquired the Czech Army key and am quickly growing very fond of it.

Re: CQ GX

[quote="af2z"]... I think the longer period might be better...

Agreed, Drew. A longer period would be better for a trial run, especially with a limited number of participants.
