Profile Information

Your Call Sign
How many years have you been performing QRQ CW
Don't really know, but about 40 years.
What speed do you like to run QRQ CW
Things change! I used to run 100 to 120 wpm with KB9XE and NU2C, but QRQ has disappeared for me over the past 7 years and on a good day I can probably copy 80 wpm now.
Your favorite key, paddle or bug
Your favorite cw keyboard
Dvorak and/or Dvorak key placement boards.
Your favorite cw sending software
Without a doubt YPlog. Even though it has not been supported in the past 10 years, it will easily run up to 200 wpm and maintian the weight ratio.
Your Rig, Antenna and RF Power
Icom IC-7700 xcvr/Titan III amp. Most of the time about 700 Watts out.
Two 40m EDZ, open wire fed
A 20m 2-el EDZ wire yagi at 70' open wire fed.
Your QSK preferences
My IC-7700 has been tested at 120 wpm full QSK and I was able to hear the second dit sent to me by KB9XE.
Ten Tec Corsair II and Icom IC-781 still very good and fast full QSK.
Your favorite headphones or speakers for listening to cw
I never listen to CW via a speaker. Mostly use Heil Pro set.
