Thanks Buzz, this will be helpful to me! Got my general yesterday and I am tired of reading questions and answers! All my studying now will be going into CW! 

Also, I regret to inform you, I got a new radio. Again. Haha! But this time for real. Someone showed up at my house the other day and handed me my very own, completely free, TS-570S!! I couldn’t believe it! A blessing indeed. Only needs a mic and i have one ordered and on the way. Now for an antenna...
