Thanks for the assistance everyone. On day 48 of my CW journey and this information is priceless! Still have yet to get on the air as I am still not quite at the 5wpm barrier. Maybe I will try to get on this weekend for my first qso!

Will stick with the key until 15wpm is broken just to get the theory down. Will keep everyone posted.

All the best and thank you everyone for your expertise. Much appreciated and all the best!

Good luck John! You might just try to make a QSO now at 5 wpm. You will find it extremely exciting. Be sure to have a cold drink handy and an armchair as you catch your breath and relax afterwards!

I often listen to pairs of ops having ragchews at 5 wpm on 40 meters. It's a very heartwarming thing to hear. And I answer their CQs too!

Give us a report after your first CW QSO--I'll be very surprised if you don't have a real thrill!
