A confessional

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.
