Hi Aaron,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
If anybody gives you a lot crap about using a keyboard refer them to me! No..I don't use a keyboard. Nobody gives me any crap for being too old fashioned <sly grin>. I see small-minded people in every endeavor. We always offer them a helping hand but do not tolerate any 'load of crap'. There is that old fashioned term again. You do not need an excuse to use a keyboard or a computer to do CW. If you need one or else have to give up CW (because you like it) then please use a keyboard and/or computer. See you on the air. I once had a nice rag chew with ham in PA - CW of course. About 45 minutes unto the QSO he told matter-of-fact that he is completely deaf! He had made a device form a speaker voice coil and 'felt' the code with his fingertips. Do whatever works for *you*.
There are so many ways to enjoy the hobby that I can't see any two hams doing it exactly the same way. And that is one of ham radio's strong points:) Most of us encourage and support one another.
I will get off the soapbox now. I need to dismantle it and use the boards to make a cabinet for my homebrew DX-100 clone <wicked grin>.
