    Why, why, its another code machine 40 wpm cw contest on 40 meters! oh, listen! There's some FT8 sprinkled in too. It's even destroying the SKCC freq

    I guess it's my fault-I should have checked the contest sked to see if a station like me can help a new ham learn cw. Not gonna happen tonight

    And I apologize to any and all offended by my rant

    I wonder when the very first "Morse Code contest hate" message was sent.... probably via a "Traffic Net" in the 1930s? 1940s, just after WWII?

    Serious question....

    Good luck to all in this weekend's event!! May the DX shine upon you

    :)

    My time will be limited, having just come back from a long road trip - but I hope to gain an ATNO or two "at 40 WPM" but not via some "code machine" but rather my own ears.

    :)

    I bet this post puts a stop to this nonsense finally. THIS is the one that will do it.

    I'm gonna go jump on 40 and listen to the SKCC freq plus 10kc on either side clear right up.

    WARC bands are a nice refuge from contests.
