Profile Information

Your Call Sign
How many years have you been performing QRQ CW
Just starting. None. I send at the rate the other party is using.
What speed do you like to run QRQ CW
Currently only good for about 35 wpm. My sending speed is my limitation.
Your favorite key, paddle or bug
Begali Signature, but I have just ordered a 9A5N pressure paddle which I will be checking out.
Your favorite cw keyboard
I do not use.
Your favorite cw sending software
I do not use anything other than N1MM+, and I use that only in contests.
Your Rig, Antenna and RF Power
k3s, 4e steppir, kw.
Your QSK preferences
Maybe I do not have the attitude required for your club. I consider use of software and keyboards as artificial. CW is a HUMAN art form. However I do use N1MM+ in contests.
Your favorite headphones or speakers for listening to cw
Sony MDR-7506
What has been your most effective way of training practice, to copy and send qrq cw
I have not trained. I just copy on 3540.5 KHZ now and then. My sending speed is my limitation.

Kenneth - You will enjoy the 9A5N paddle. I picked one up at Dayton a few years ago and it is my day-to-day paddle. (I use my Chevron paddle for special events.) I particularly like being able to easily adjust the pressure required to actuate the paddle. I use 20 grams pressure on my 9A5N. 73 Jim KA0IQT
