"Hey Jerry Nice to see you on QRQ CW. I built a filter for my keyer output and will try tp get it operating on Mumble. I always work QSK so it would be hard for me to not have it. Welcome! 73, Bill N7YT"
"It was published in the CFO newsletter some time ago and perhaps someone still has a copy around. CFO was a lot of fun back in the 70s and some of the ops were proficient at over 80 WPM. It takes a lot of practice to do that and there are very few…"
"Artur, there are three ways to do the rooster crow. Use a bug and make all the long sounds with the dash side. Use a straight key for all of it, and there was an electronic circuit that someone designed to automatically do the crow sound. Some would…"
"Hope to meet you on the air. I am mostly on 40 CW and sometimes on 20. I have straight key, bug, paddles for W5UXH keyer and keyboard. I think the best way to get used to QRQ is to operate QRQ on the air when you can find someone who operates that…"
"I used a DCM Electronics MKB-2000 sometime in the 70s when I got started in CFO and I was on so often in those days that I wore a dip in the space bar. That was a really nice board at the time but tonight I tried it out and it was stiff and clunky.…"
"Thank you, Bill... and thank you also for your military service. Summer is my busiest time of all but I will be looking you up on freq someday. I guess this is sorta' a warning since my very slow key might make you…"
"Ed, I am on often around 7.029 to 7.032 in the evenings and on weekend days. I use a bug and keyboard and also a keyer but no sideswiper. QRQ is a matter of using CW and using a pencil to take very brief notes but not to copy with! Hope to see you…"
"Well there are several Bills around this site. When I talk with Jerry K9JB I run 55 to 60 depending on the conditions. Tonight QRN was high as was Jerry's line noise and we QSO for a mew minutes at about 20 wpm. Yesterday AI6U and I were…"
"I am using my rk 9000RE and I like it. The feel is good and the keyboard is steady on the desk and solid. The keys feel good to me although I have to have a few hours on the air before I will really be comfortable with it. I have had a few QSO with…"
"Good. I make too many mistakes and I don't have my fingers trained to hit the backspace and get rid of them so I am hopeful the layout will help with that. I should have it end of next week - its in my office now but I won't be back…"
"I really look forward to the board. My DGM board is all mechanical but there is about a 1/8 dip on the space bar from hitting it to much back in the late 70s and I am afraid to use it too much because if the EPROM goes I won't have a backup…"
Thank you, Bill... and thank you also for your military service. Summer is my busiest time of all but I will be looking you up on freq someday. I guess this is sorta' a warning since my very slow key might make you comatose. hihi
