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.
