I'm using LCWO to regain code speed after many years of disuse.

I seemed to reach a threshold at lesson 22. I got there quickly with solid 90% copy but I suppose I reached the point at 22 where rustiness caught up. I'll get through it, I'm sure.

I've also never copied on the keyboard before and am doing so now. That adds another mental chore to the process of copy. I'm a touch typist but not terribly proficient. I'm sure it slows me down a bit. This too shall pass with practice.

I struggle with the old mental habit of dah-di-dahing as the code is heard. That's a tough one to overcome and I can only hope as my proficiency improves I'll find myself doing it less.

As others, I struggle with recovery from copy errors or misses. But I'm getting better on that score.

My intent is to work through the 40 lessons at one minute lessons with 90% accuracy. Then I'll go back and do the 40 over at five minutes. That should be interesting.

I really appreciate this program.

I have only gotten to lesson 5 but it It sounds like Ralph could read my mind. (He posted his comments first. I wonder how he did it? Premonition perhaps?)

My initial reaction mirrors Ralph's almost exactly, as far as 5 lessons go that is. I have not been active for well over 10 years on any band or any mode but this practice could renew my interest and get the juices flowing again.

Thank you Fabian.
