I just started this group with the hopes that I will be joined by other radio users here in Michigan who are wanting to learn and to use CW.
So, if you are from anywhere here in the great State of Michigan...welcome!

Nice to meet you John! I'm from Grand Rapids and have been licensed since 2000. Been trying to learn cw for quite some time now BUT just really getting serious about it in the last month or so.
So far I've only "progressed" through lessons one and two but, well, I guess I am making some progress...!
Nice to meet you and welcome to our group!

Is anybody still active in this group?

Hey all - I just joined this group last week. Licensed since '95 but haven't been active in many years... Here to learn my code & get back on the air.

How has this site worked out for you all?

I used it to develop some cw competency. Am now working on speed. Very good program and having used both farnsworth and Kock methods, I found the Koch more challenging but also developed my skill faster. Hope to hear you on the air.

A former Michgander now in Nevada. Hope you don't kick me out of the group. :-) Haven't used CW since 1985 or so. Just getting back into it. This site has been very helpful as I find the MorseMachine very useful. A little frustrated with Koch as I seem to be on a plateau for a bit.

very cool, will give it a try.

I used Morse Machine on my Android phone to brush up on code, which I hadn't touched in 50 years. Now I'm using LCWO to get some speed up. At first it was discouraging, because the actual speed is much higher than the speed you select. But now I know better. I don't have a transceiver, so I listen to real CW using http://websdr.org/. Boy, it that different, with noise, interference and sloppy sending.

Oh my gosh, this is a great site! Loving it. Tho slow going for me. But very fun. Wonder how long it will take me to get through all 40 lessons. Looking forward to it.

I suspect that is why old timers suggest using a radio. If you can copy signals down in the floor you are doing good. It is however frustrating.

Hey, only 3 years since the last post. Used to copy code for a living years ago, and now brushing up before I get on the air. Once I get through the various lessons I'll have to practice sending.

I just realized that I am in a group! lol Glad to be here, just starting the process of learning.
