    Agree. I really enjoy SKCC and the group has done HEAPS for my CW motivation. I was pretty excited to get my "T" but the exchange started to become routine. I now try to extend the conversation with those that either have the time AND I can copy well. In most cases I will get a few back and forths; sometimes, if I'm lucky, a never ending ragchew that leaves me tired with a sense of accomplishment.

    Quick exchange or ragchew; I still find it amazing that was able to learn any of it and enjoy a QSO of any kind. Really is a grand hobby and mode to learn.

    Yes, QRL? Waited abc then called. After their third try I heard someone come back, KT4 something but there was so much noise and the signal was very weak. I am going to try again another couple of times.

    I didn't know you were trying Brian, I wasn't looking at this thread. Drop me a email and give me a idea when and where you will be, with a little notice, I'll be there. 73 Rich
