I have been stuck for months. I have used all kinds of methods to get past the head copy barrier. I make live QSOs almost every day, I practice with a MJF code generator during lunch [the guys at work have learned to leave me alone when practicing
] I use G4FON to practice pile up work, and I have worked several contests. I have an 857 in the truck to work mobile, which I do as often as I can, just at a very slow speed. And I "put away the pen" every chance I get. I get lots of practice. I guess I am just looking for any other methods that I have missed.
