Recently returned to ham radio after a 50+ year absence. Have been elmering my 12 year old grandson, new ham KC3MSU, and we are learning Morse Code together. Many of the slow code operators I hear on the air are SKCC members, so we should fit in. My grandson still has a way to go before he's ready to have a CW QSO, but I will eventually have him join SKCC, too.

As a kid I remember watching and listening to my Dad, (KØQBR) now SK, work CW with a straight key back in the late 1950's and early 60's. CW has always been my main attraction to HAM radio since then. I enjoy CW very much and want to keep manual, straight key CW alive!

Love the code. I would like to send and receive at the speed most SKCC operators use. I like my hand key and want to get more practice with using it. I think these monthly "contests" will be a fun opertunity to use code.

Learned code when first licensed, then I ignored it for years. Took a class at the local club to relearn .... now to get better. Main reason? QRP.

Morse is the heart and foundation of amateur radio. The Straight Key is the basis of Morse. Like my other equipment, I like equipment I *can* build for myself, even if I choose to pay for it.

20287 - WM7X - Stephen - Kennewick - WA
Finally ready to get over the (imagined) fear and nervousness of CW. Funny, never really wanted to learn CW until it was no longer required! Hope to develope good skills and learn along the way. Goal is to be able to contest someday and once CW is a second language to me, be able to mentor someone in the mode as well. Thanks for the welcome, and i look forward to a QSO soon with many of you!

20288 - KD6WYH - Tony - Petaluma - CA
I need to practice and be involved, and help keep CW use in ham radio.

20289 - WR8RW - Robert - Taylors - SC
Fairly new to CW. Want to have the opportunity to work CW at a slower pace in order to build confidence in my abilities to read and send CW. Intend to us CW here at the house and outside (SOTA & etc.) on my X5105 and Pixie. Thanks and 73.

Trying to learn more code and was told this organization was very helpful and committed to keeping Morse code relevant.

20292 - KA0FYB - Dave - Two Harbors - MN
I have held a Novice license since 1978. I've kept it up to date with the FCC ever since. I am now working on my TECH and GENERAL tickets and I want to get back in to code. I learned it to get my Novice ticket. I want to use it again when I get one or both of my tickets next month.

20293 - KL7FHX - George - Austin - TX
I want to get back on HFCW. Long story: I got my novice ticket in 1964, and I enjoyed SKCW with a low power rig. Now, I am going on 82, and I need to reactivate my cw prowess :)

20294 - M0BPU - Trevor - Bexhill-on-Sea - ENG
I have always loved hearing CW and I feel for my difficult location it's the best mode of operation. I am also determined to become more proficient in the use of both receiving and sending and hope SKCC helps!

I want to get back into cw after a long break after operating ham radio after a 14 year breakand even longer from cw. A you tube video by Cliff N4CCB made my mind up to join SKCC.

20298 - KF5ZIM - Gregg - ROGERS - AR
Watched the Cliff N4CCB video and it got me hooked.

20299 - N0CC - Chris - Green Brook - NJ
I started out in the 60s in the ARRL traffic system. I’ve always enjoyed CW operation - traffic handling back then and contests . I was inactive for a number of years and am just getting back into it. My rig has a built in keyer but I want to get back to basics. I picked up a vintage Hamkey straight key and I’ve been practicing to get some of the rust off my fist. Joining SKCC seemed the natural thing to do.

20300 - KF7GNY - Brion - Ogden - UT
always wanted to learn/use morse code; now learning and want use my skill without having to worry about finding myself doing QSO with hams using paddles and keyers

20301 - 2E0AAO - Stephen - Stoke On Trent - ENG
Hi. I am learning very on straight key as I feel this is the right way to start the old fashioned way. I want to be a good courteous cow operator and feel this club will help me to achieve this. Kind Regards Stephen

20310 - AF0U - Josh - Eau Claire - WI
I got a taste of straight-key operation during a recent SKCC event by setting my iambic paddle into straight-key mode on the rig; while not an ideal input device, that inspired me to acquire a proper key. I look forward to participating in similar future events with other members.
