as far as code speed goes-I am stuck at 18 wpm and love it! I used the Farnesworth method to learn, and I get along very well at that speed. I even check into a couple of CW nets-and the NCS [net control station] is always very patient-heck, there are hams slower than me and they get aolong just fine!

that is GREAT READING! I downloaded it and am enjoying it quite a bit-I have been a ham only 45 years, so I know I have a lot to learn. that book is really super-

I highly recommend it to all.

thank you for having suggested this book!

I am curious about the antenna KD5ENR says he uses-the Spi-Rho antenna. I had one [10 thru 40] and it seemed to work fairly well, but I did have some complaints, so I switched to a AD antenna - 80 thru 10, and am using that now-I keep the SpiRo for portable use. but I am curious about his experience...
