The 6500 never ceases to amaze me.

This is Ed, K1RID/P in Maine running an Alinco at 15 watts into a home brew loop. I was able to get near 100% copy on him until XYL QRN (his not mine). 
 

Not long before Ed I got to work CY9C on St. Paul Island. Finding a place to nestle into the crowd is so easy it's almost embarrassing. 


A few hours before this I learned about the weekly CWT contest after seeing this activity on the waterfall:


I grumble a lot about this rig but I'm pretty sure it's not the rig but the operator qualifications in question. I appreciate the group's patience with me. By the way... I think I might start a scrapbook with my favorite waterfall pictures.

It's not like the old days. This looks like the science station on the Starship Enterprise and not a setup for a 10 second CW exchange.

Kevin,

The cwops http://cwops.org/ are a great group of folks dedicated to preserving and promoting the art form as is FRS's dedication to blazing a path for the leading edge of technology.

Also thanks for posting about cy9. I need it and did not realize it was active.

I'll check the CW Operators Club out. I'm SKCC and FISTS member but there's room for more. Good luck with CY9!
