I have a soft, warm comforting voice. A wonderful attribute when in a quiet conversation, but useless as a signal source in a SSB contest. I gave sweepstakes a try last night. Tragic failure. I'm WAY better off sticking to CW. My wife made me laugh so hard tonight when she had a little fun repeating my QSOs from last night. Oh my, all the pain of hard fought QSOs came back with full force. Fortunately, I really dig CW. Anyone else in the same boat?
