My Ham Radio Interests
Ham radio operator for 13 years now, and enjoying every minute.
Got started in ham radio like probably most hams, by getting my tech license.
Got an HT, Alinco forget the model hi hi. But repeaters were just not what I got into ham radio for.
Later I started studying for the general class exam and had to study Morse code.
then I thought, you know this is what I got into ham radio for in the first place!
After learning the code at a blazing fast 5 wpm, I took my test and past with perfect copy!
Now I have been running Code for 12 years now and having a ball doing so.
I believe, the FCC should not have taken the Morse code requirement out of the Exam to the General class license,
if it was not for this part of the test, I would probably been lost in ham radio air space!
I run about 90% Morse Code and play with the digital modes some, but CW is where my heart is.

If you have ever thought about giving Morse Code a try, give it a shot, you just don't know?
you might be meant for it also. and it is really not that hard to learn, HEY if I can learn it, anyone can.
Hope to chat with you soon on the code bands.

Is it just me? or does any other hams like getting QSL cards in the mail?
I know they have Lotw, and eqsl and all that, and that QSL cards cost to send.
But it is nice to have a card in hand. I never use the other ways of sending cards anymore as I like getting and collecting them myself. maybe this is why I like Morse code so well, might be I am a little old school hi hi.....hope to cu soon on the bands 73

Since, I am only just starting, I don't have any yet. But, I too think it would be nice to get them in the mail.
