Locking up

Postby KC5MO » Fri Sep 11, 2015 2:22 pm

Hello all,
I'm not a new member to SKCC, but I have decided to get over being VERY key shy and learn CW. The trouble that I have is locking up when trying to copy CW. If I miss a character I will sit there trying to figure out what it was rather than skip it and go on. I am fine with the typical contest exchange of RST and QTH but anymore than that my ADHD get to me and all is lost, it's very frustrating. Is there any tricks to overcome this other than practice, practice and practice.

Didn't call it locking up but this is my biggest trouble as well. Thought it might be linked to trying to learn cw at 72. But I still am trying.
