Just found this site. I have had my license for awhile now. I only have a handheld at the moment but hope to get a better setup after the first of the year. Something that is portable and can be used as a base station. Maybe the Yaesu 817ND.
All that doesn't have much to do with cw but an introduction. I am eager to get stated. Mostly been listing to the tones right now. Just downloaded a couple of mp3s for the trip on vacation.
Hi Ben, you're about to start a long and hopefully enjoyable journey in the world of CW. Have patience with yourself, be persistent and above all, enjoy it! I myself have only been working at improving my pretty lousey CW skills for about 4 months (mostly using this website), and now feel confident enough to get on the air at 12-15wpm. This is the best there is, and it's FREE!
