I just passed tonight Element 1. For those wanting to upgrade I can tell you that it was not that hard..If I can do it..believe me, you also can.

Should I get now ready for 10 wpm?

Congratulations.

And to go 10 wpm, there's nothing to get ready for.

Get on the air, making CW contacts.

Log every contact in a book so you can count how many contacts you've made.

By the time you make your 500th contact, you will be easily working more than 20 wpm, and that's an absolute guarantee.  Never saw anybody fail this one.

Congrats! Get on the air right now if you have the equipment. There should be other hams doing slow code that you can contact.

You certainly should begin practicing for higher speeds. Ten words per minute is a good goal and you can do that pretty quickly. You'll be surprised. It'll sneak up on you just doing contacts.

Congratulations on passing Element 1!

The most fun way to get to 10wpm is to get on the
air. It was work to get the characters down and
build some speed for Element 1; now it's time to
have some fun.

You'll pick up CW operating procedures along
the way.
