20858 - N0ZF - John - Tomah - WI
As a Novice back in the day, cw was my world until upgrading. Even after upgrading to higher license class, the additional frequencies available in the cw portion of the bands opened up new cw operating space. On VHF, cw is a must if auroral propagation occurs. I also have noted that there are SK numbers that are exchanged. This is new to me, and I want to be ready to exchange my SK number when prompted. 73, John.

I am learning CW via practice straight key and with a CD and booklet. Nothing beats actually listening on the radio, and I have even attempted to send cw. I believe joining a club and practicing with actual keyers will be the best way for me to become proficient.

Thank you for considering my membership. 73, Joe
