Re: Not so good on first try.

Congratulations Steve!! That's great!!
99.9 percent of the CW ops will take the time for a new CW op.
I still remember my 1st CW contact as a Novice--1977-- What a thrill that was.
Hope to be able to work you some time soon.

Re: Not so good on first try.

Welcome to CW, Bob.
We all started out slow, so don't worry about that. Practice-Practice-Practice.
Get on the air as often as you can and you'll be suprised how your receiving will increase.
Above all---Have Fun.

Practice, practice and more practice and your speed will increase. Best practice is 'on the air'. Been at it for a lil' over 30 yrs and every QSO is exhilerating...

Hey Mark...I like that idea.
Have a bug and can not seem to master it and have often thought it was because I do not know how to properly set it up.
Looking forward to your article.
Thanks!
