Profile Information

Your Call Sign
How many years have you been performing QRQ CW
about 3 years
What speed do you like to run QRQ CW
40 for contests, around 30 for QSOs. I send by hand using a paddle and have not mastered sending speeds over 40 by hand. Also find most operators on HF go around 20 wpm or less. So I go at whatever speed the sending station is sending.
Your favorite key, paddle or bug
Begali Magnum and Begali Sculpture
Your favorite cw keyboard
Don't use one. I send by hand using a paddle.
Your favorite cw sending software
I don't use software but send by hand manually. Sometimes I will use my Logging prom - RumlogNT, to send my call and contest exchange.
Your Rig, Antenna and RF Power
K3, KX3, TS-590
Vert, Hexbeam, Dipoles
Your QSK preferences
Trying to get used to full QSK but find most QSOs on the air get confused with this so not much chance to use full QSK
Your favorite headphones or speakers for listening to cw
I have Yamaha headphones that work well. I prefer headphones over listening to the speakers. Headphones drown out all the surrounding household interference and allows me to focus 100% on the CW
What has been your most effective way of training practice, to copy and send qrq cw
I've used Fabian's QRQ for word lists, Morse Runner for Contest practice. Lately, I have been listening to ARRL broadcasts at 40 wpm. I also use the iPhone app 'Ham Morse' and listen to simulated QSOs. The companion app on the Web is the web site which has the same functionality. I've also used Fabian's 'ebook2cw' to create CW MP3 files for listening in the car or on Travel.

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
