Your favorite key, paddle or bug
Your favorite cw keyboard
PC to a Winkeyer
Your favorite cw sending software
Usually DX4WIN but also use N1MM+ from time to time

K3S to dipoles. I have an Acom 2kA but usually only run it for contests I choose to run high power in.
Your QSK preferences
Both the K3S and the Acom do QSK perfectly
Your favorite headphones or speakers for listening to cw
JVC audio headphones.
What has been your most effective way of training practice, to copy and send qrq cw
Operating mobile for many years. And now listening to files.
