In 43 years as a ham I've never had an HF contact of any kind other than CW. I have no interest in voice or digital modes. Learned Morse at an early age. Taught by my father the original K4ESG the way he learned in the signal corps. Got novice ticket at age 12 in 1978. Learned with a J-38 and was given a 1920's RR telegrapher's bug when I got my general class in 1980 by the op/ham that used it on the Southern Railroad in the 1920's. I've used it for 40 years.

I am a licensed amateur from 1989. Was inactive on CW for a long time and wish to restart now. I saw this as a great platform to restart and meet some great hams.

I've had a long term love of CW (Even though I don't claim to be that great of an operator :-)) and have recently returned to using a straight key and want to support that facet of operating.

I love the sound of morse code and being able to understand it... albeit slowly at the moment. I like this mode of being able to talk to people around the world. I prefer the straight key over anything else. I look forward to speeding up my morse and one day soon to have a QSO. Glad I found this site.

I recently returned to the hobby after a 25 year sabbatical. As a young ham my favorite mode of communication was CW, and I intend to be active in CW again. I happened across the Weekend Sprint today and thought it would be great to partake in future ones to brush up on my skills.
