Gary, KE5AMW, is a CW guy. He’s gotten me interested to sharpen my CW skills that have rusted over the years.
I confess– he’s also inspired me to finally learn how to use a CW mechanical Bug, something I’ve put off for years. I bought this off of eBay a long time ago, but never learned how to key it.
Yep, I did it! I’m barely a novice with it now, but I practiced awhile and can do it! How any of the newer hams have seen one of these creatures? I’ll bring it into the next club meeting and hook up to a code practice oscillator for anyone wanting to give it test drive. I’m sure there are some bug experts in the club; maybe we’ll get them to show us how to do it.

Wow, you call that 20+ wpm last week “rusted?” I need to switch over to an amateur club.
