Hello and thanks for your time answering some questions from us Newer CW Ops I hesitate to call myself a CW Op after reading some bio's from well experienced Ops saying that one should master Morse and always use prosigns correctly no matter what, use the Q code and basically be perfect before getting on the air. I wish that there were novice bands, like used in the past where us new guys can learn and practice without offending the perfect OPs out there! but alas, there are not. Us new guys are forced to learn by jumping right in and trying our best. Thanks to those who help us along our journey. Ok, I'm rambling. I have a question or 2. I'll start with.. What is with the letter V sent a few times from Bug users before calling CQ?
