Thread: First QSO!

Back to the Forum

Just made my first QSO. I only today got my iambic paddles (very convenient) and jumped right on the air. I'm 15wpm on LCWO (but not consistent - only words and callsigns, still get lost in random groups) and the guy on the other side was calling CQ at 12wpm, so I rolled the keyer down and it felt really comfortable. It took us 15 minutes to finish the QSO ;-) Painful, but we made it! So excited!

Congratulations, Adam. The first QSO (like the first million) is the hardest. It only gets better from now!

73 and see you on the bands,
Fabian, DJ1YFK (a.k.a. SO5CW)
