Are you considering trying iambic keying as I am? This could help you decide.

I didn't have the "oomph" to try any sweeps this past weekend.
I'm HOPING to put in some time next weekend in CQ WW CW.
It is day by day for me at this point.

Got the clean sweep, first time in a while, what with hurricanes in the islands diminishing activity there in recent contests.

My antenna challenges (fewer and fewer trees) have been solved, at least temporarily. 40M Dipole & 80M G5RV are up and ready for CW SS.

Frank Conrad's Desk

Pete W3WC
 

Yesterday, I visited Mel Check's Radio Museum. Mel was a longtime KDKA technical producer, often for sports broadcasts including the Pirates.

He has amassed a great collection of KDKA and other antique radio items. 

This is the desk of Frank Conrad, 8XK, the primary amateur radio founder of KDKA 100 years ago next year.
