One thing about CW is that it is a perishable skill. If you don't use it enough, you get rusty in decoding code in your head. So I put the TS480 back in the truck. This morning I had a QSO with K1PUG - Hank from CT, N2KOF, also from CT and K4LNN in Florida. I also listened to several ongoing QSO's. It makes for a short ride to work when you are ragchewing at 15-20 words per minute.
