"I really like the super fine threaded contact screws, and that the locking screws are separate from the contacts screws. They are located on top of the columns. Screws down vertically. "

"Thank you Chuck. I believe, this is the one I will keep forever. It is so easy to adjust and it stays in place. I don’t even have to use the lock screws. I can adjust it so close, it feels almost, like a touch paddle. I love it. Much better,…"

Imre:  Chuck showed me that video before.  I like the fact that it shows him using the Graciella then switching to the board for QRQ.  Very inspirational.

Hi Imi,

Thank you for the call, I have heard you on the CFO net 12/20/2011, and look forward to meeting you on the air. At the moment I am finding it easier to read the faster cw than send it,  I am hoping to practise the keyboard and get my speed up,perhaps we will meet on the bands, 73 Rich G4FAD

Hi Imi !

Just wanted to let you know that I'm coming closer here: hehe :-P

I still read from time your kind email, which always makes me smile and encourages me to keep practicing CW, dreaming to become QRQer :-)

As of MR, next target is to start feeling 270 QSOs a feasible goal. Have no idea if I will ever make it, but I won't stop trying !

I also see that you have a new key from UK. Looks beautiful !  I got a HST single-lever paddle one from Belarus. It has huge spacings and feels wonderful.

73 y muchos 88 para ti,

your MR fan,

Thank you, Imi. I wish these storms would cease! Spent two days fighting water and no air time because of lightning and high QRN here.  I think they are moving on, but it may be this weekend before it calms down.

Hi, Imi.  I hope these doctors quit cutting on me soon.  When are you coming over here?  I am trying to get active here in NE Texas with a small antenna at the least.  QRP & QRQ not the bast combination, but will do what I can from here, son.  I have an FT-817ND and an OMNI 7  here and some wire in the apartment.
