I've decided once again to take up code and baring any major life inturuptions like last time (two years ago) I will finish! So not needing to be said I'm a newbie when it comes to morse code. I've been in radio since deconstructing and rebuilding (improving) a remote controlled toy when I was nine or so. introduced to ham when a friend talked my family into buying me a HT. had to get a licence to use it so I did.
I just moved and don't really know any hams in the area (yet!). so I'm voicing my questions here. one by one... maybe a couple at a time.
First question I keep seeing the Q sign QSV. now it says: Shall I send a series of Vs on this frequency? or, Send a series of Vs on this frequency.
Now I uderstand it at face value, but why would you want someone to send Vs or want to recieve Vs. I see often on CW pages VVV. What's the point?
That's my main question right now. I need to get back to MorseCat. Oh, I'm also looking for homebrew plans for a frequency agile QRP rig. for either 80 or 40 meters. (haven't decided don't know that I care). looking for max of 2 watts but needs to be able to run off of a small solar charger/battery setup. I've seen the pixe 2 and tuna tin etc... there is alot of info and plans on the net but alot of the kits or schematics links are broken or incomplete info.
Thanks for any and all replies. please reply here or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
