Thread: On air study

Back to the Forum

Every experienced cw operator I've talked to says the only way to get proficient with cw is to get on the air. If you have stage freight and want to make that leap without feeling embarrassed, why not practice with other newbies? I know there's a few study groups online but for those like me with poor internet, I'd like to find one or more persons to practice with on air. I have a mobile rig 6m-40m capable. QTH is Nevada, halfway between Reno and Vegas. 73

I am quite a ways behind you in progress. I am at 20wpm with 5wpm Farnsworth spacing. Sometimes I get away with 10wpm but not very accurately. Do you have hf? I see you're in PA based on your call sign so 30m or 40m might work out depending on time of day and conditions. 80m would probably be best but I need to get my antenna sorted. I'm looking forward to it and would like to make the frequency and times public to hopefully convince others to take the leap.

Yes I do have hf. I need to tweak my 80 meter antenna a little bit. My spaceing is also 5 . I sent a personal message to you with my email

I can't seem to find where to check messages on lcwo. My call is KN6HTH. You'll find my email on qrz. My qrz shows California still and hasn't updated.

Beside the suggestions you were given, I am working on a "Morse over IP" client for Linux, but with CWCom, you can send/receive morse over the Internet. I haven't tried it.

Richard: That sounds like where I went to high school in Austin. Middle of nowhere but the noise floor sure was low out there.

Ok so does anyone have a suggested frequency to hang out at, say on 40 and/or 20 meters?

Thor- I live in Tonopah. WD3DX and myself were trying the bands earlier with success only on 17m. For 40m and 80m we're trying to stay in the Tech portion so any LCWO followers can jump in without being restricted. We haven't really confirmed any specific frequency, yet. If you're looking to make your first cw contact, I would suggest the qrp portion of either band.

Rich I think we did a good job today. You were more or less mobile and I was in my shack . It took some time but we did it .
