just another one.


I'm in just about the same place as you are. I don't "love" CW whatsoever.
I really "like"it, but I'm not one of the nostalgic FISTS geezers that write
poems about it and can head-copy a 60+ WPM data stream of CW while
drinking a cup of coffee, talking with someone in the shack, petting the
dog, and keeping their pipe lit! My CW operation is purely call/name/QTH/
Nice to meet you/QSL via burro/TNX ex 73 de K3LT QRZ? I may toss
in a few additional comments, but for me, ANY QSO in ANY mode that
lasts more than 10 minutes just isn't my style. I do have a tendency to
go on a bit longer in PSK-31 when I have a good connection, but I type
like a legal secretary, and that isn't any work for me.
