A forum dedicated only to CW enthusiasts would certainly be the place to ask this question. I am quite interested in learning CW at some point in the near future. It really intrigues me. Not long ago an experienced local ham whom I respect and also is an experienced CW operator made a suggestion to me when I was asking him questions about CW. He suggested/warned me and any other ham to not even think about learning how to send code with out first becoming VERY proficient in the reading of it first. He said it is like two different ballgames. That reading should always be mastered first BEFORE the other. Actually makes good sense to me. Any other input/suggestions on this would be met with open ears. Thanks.
