What's your experience with Morse code?
[319 votes since 2016-02-06]
  Never learned it, never will.
  Never learned, but want to.
  Just learning it now...somewhat.
  Seriously studying it.
  Learned it for license years ago. Barely used it since.
  Learned it, use it, love it.

    Shack Showcase KC8RAJ
    KC8RAJ ello, I've been a ham since 2001 and before that I always listened to shortwave and scanners. My favorite bands are 160,80/75 and 2 meters. My setup as of now is an Icom 718 for HF and an Icom 2000 and Icom 2100 for 2 meters. I use a 5/8 wave groundplane for 2 meters and a G5RV for HF receive. I should be on the hf bands in a month or two as I'm currently working on the code. 73's from KC8RAJ
