I just made my first contact on CW a few minutes ago to a ham in MO. I asent CQ and my call several times on 7.122 and he answered. I froze at first, but got through it. I copied the signal report, QTH, and his name, and 73. That was about it. I sent the same info. Weird hearing your name in CW!

I think I started something great. I'll practice the code for a while before I turn in.

Congratulations!  It gets easier fast, and then you will start to know what all the fuss is about.  CW contacts are always fun, and I know you will love it!

CW is certainly a different kettle of fish.

You will find that the "CW kettle of fish" only smells for a little while and from then on it is a wonderful dish!  Congratulations!!

Dave,
  I was the Missouri ham.  I thought you did great.  Much better than my first CW QSO.  You sent good, easy to copy morse code.  I wouldn't worry too much about code practice.  Just get on and make more contacts.  I did send out a QSL card today.  Go have fun!
