I'm in the mood to study CW again. I'm doing some searches but could use some addresses of CW sites with general CW FAQ's basics. Need to know about elec. keying, IAMBIC?, etc. What type of key to look for for my FT-620B(cica 1976)it has a 1/4" phono jack and adjustment's for 'sidetone' and 'a relay adjustment, break-in?' I love 6M and have been hearing CW now I'm interested and want to get a key and study the terms while I study my code CD. Thanks in advance.

"The Art & Skill of Radio Telegraphy" by William G. Pierpong N0HFF may answer some of your questions. You can get it for free (pdf file) at

http://www.qsl.net/n9bor/n0hff.htm

or you can also order a hardcopy at the same site.

for a code refresher go to  http://www.g4fon.co.uk/  and down load his free  soft ware.  there is also a program there you can use to type in on the computer and it scores for you too.  this is the koch method. you start with 2 characters at 20 wpm, thenlisten and copy for 5 minutes.  when you get 90% on the two, add one letter and go again.  when you have all of the 46 numbers, prosigns and letters learned, you know code at 20 wpm, which is useful, and you can pass the 5 wpm test in your sleep..  Ray has made this a great program  73  tom N6AJR
