I like CW best really down deep in my heart but don't take the time to work it enough to be really proficient at it.... if I work at it a week or so I'm crusing along about 16-18 slow words a minute. I love RTTY and Amtor, I Never did care too much for Packet. I think when I upgrade the old PK-238 I will do a bit of Pactor, perhaps.With the event of the PC I have turned a lot of my interest to learning (slow) how to etc....etc. I don't do contest.... not too interested in DX, and I seldom use the micriophone. I was a C-W DJ for several years and probably got enough gabbin' to hold me for a few years at least. Love building wire antennas. Best one ever was a Rhombic that was nearly 500 feet long.... 260 feet or so on each leg of the diamond....very very efficient.
