It's been almost a year since I made my first cw qso, but I'm still far away from any proficiency even at very low speed. But, I'm also enjoying the slow progress, I feel myself getting better little by little. In many situations, either training or real, I feel my brain easily loosing focus unless I hear some familiar words that I already picked up very quick somehow. Those words have some musical rhythm that is easy to remember (or hard to forget once picked up). Just a few of them here: FER QTH NICE TIME BEST What are your favorite words that you learned so quick with no much effort? I want to try yours and see if they fit in my sense of rhythm.
