I spent the evening conversing with Ed, KN9V on 40 Meters. Ed sent me an e-mail a few weeks back, asking him if I would meet him on the air for some real live CW practice. We tried earlier this week, but the propagation gods were against us. Tonight we had a much better go.
Ed feels that he’s a little rusty, but it was evident that he’s really doing fine. We were about 559 both ways, and we were able to enjoy a QSO for just about an hour. A little QSB and QRM made it interesting, but it was a very nice QSO.
I hope to meet Ed on the air again soon.
If you feel your Morse Code needs a little work and that you need a CW buddy, then send me an e-mail at [email protected].
Time permitting, I’d love to make a sked with you and work with you on the air. Now that the KPA3 amp is installed in my K3, I can turn on the afterburners so that you wouldn’t have to strain to hear me. Although, if you’re so inclined as to want to attempt a 2X QRP QSO, you wouldn’t get any arguments from me! I am comfortable sending anywhere between 5 to about 23 WPM, and I can go on any band from 160 to 6 Meters.
I am available most weeknights, and would be glad to hear from you.
