24698 - MW7SRA - Sara - Newcastle Emlyn - WAL
I am currently learning Morse code with the aim to use CW on air, especially for SOTA, and have started to look at organisations to help me take the next step to start keying and doing QSOs. I didn't fancy iambic double paddles and in my wanderings on the internet, I came across sidesweepers which seems like the perfect thing for me. Hopefully that will work out for me, but I've also got a ordinary straigh key as a backup. SKCC seems like a nice bunch of people that offer plenty of activities for beginners as well as seasoned CW operators.
24699 - N2YR - Joe - Endicott - NY
Regain comfortable 10-15 wpm rag chew ability lost after long lay off. Also must improve "head copy", my copy writing is limited by arthritis to specifics only above 7 wpm.
24700 - N6QDO - Jim - Blacksburg - VA
Want to use the straight key more often.
Your organization was recommended by my friend N3AO, SKCC 1073.
24701 - WO9G - Alan - West Lafayette - IN
I got tech plus and general learning the code and have since fallen out of using it. I’d like to re learn it and I have an older Vibroplex that I’d like to become proficient at. This seems like the best place to learn.

Belonging to the SKCC is a perfect “excuse” to keep the dust off the old bug!
24703 - AI7IV - Nick - Yelm - WA
I want to adventure more into the CW world.
24704 - N9UNX - Chad - Indianapolis - IN
I started learning CW last October, and have been doing QSOs since March. I'm still improving for sure, but some fellow hams have convinced me to give the straight key a try, and said I should really try to participate in an SKCC sprint once I get better with the straight key.
I love CW!

Learning cw thru Long Island. I see a number of teachers long island are members skcc. Interested in pota. FT8 is pretty boring. Cw is hard. I need all the help I can get. I’m learning on a new vibroplex straight key. Thankfully my radio has a trainer. Just bought Morseino. Thank you for considering my membership. J

I’d like to return to CW, but sometimes it seems intimidating with some operators as they transmit beyond my current speed. I understand this group has the patience to allow me to progress at my pace.
