    Keep after it, you'll get there. We all pass through the writing it down for later decoding stage. Comprehensive knowledge of the alphabet is pretty fundamental, but we learn different characters at different speeds.

    When you hear, dit-dit-dit-dit dit-dit, from another car's horn while driving and your first thought is, "What the hell is his problem?"

    My main problem is no one to practice with and I refuse to use the computer trainers. Why have a dog and bark yourself is my motto. So i just go out portable and call cq. Nothing like jumping in the deep end and either sinking or swimming. Its been 12 months since i did any cw without aides so i was pretty scratchy.
