Your Call Sign
WF3T
How many years have you been performing QRQ CW
25

Well, I used to consider QRQ 50wpm but I never hear anyone working those speeds now. Finding guys to work at 40 is hard.

Schurr
Your favorite cw keyboard
PC to a Winkeyer
Your favorite cw sending software
Usually DX4WIN but also use N1MM+ from time to time
Your Rig, Antenna and RF Power
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.
