    Yes sir, I've looked those before! I'm very slow minded when it comes to computers. The last time I looked at them was when the second phase of the Raspberry 3's were out! I need to check them out again!
    Have a good one! Brent KI5DNS

    The draw once seen is the magic of simplicity and the challenge of driving oneself is clear.

    Growth of CW comes from finding Elmering opportunities. The first step in Elmering is in sharing the simplicity and joy of challenge through sharing passion.

    Elmering is not hard. Answer some emails, some phone calls, maybe bat out some code and just be there for somebody to lean on when they have questions. The rewards are significant.

    I am a new licensee (August 2020). I've always been fascinated by CW. The walkie talkies I had as a child had the code printed on the base just below the speaker and me and my cousin would send code to each other when he visited in the summers. Got pretty decent at it but of course that's all lost on me now :) So here I am now listening to the K6RAU course working my way through it. I started last week and am enjoying it so far. Hopefully it'll stick in this sieve of a brain :D

    I don't check in now, but if you do code, the TEX cw net is still going and could use some check ins. 3.541 Mc. at 7:00 PM local. Jim or Randy or Rodney would be thrilled to hear you. Good luck.

    US Merchant Marine! 20 WPM got you a second class commercial radiotelegraph ticket needed to go to sea as an RO. Lots of RO’s were hams. Not sure if it was chicken or egg first. And all deck officers still need 5 wpm blinker light testing.
