With complete disregard for others he SLOWED down for me.


Actually, that's what a good operator is supposed to do.  In contests, though, it often doesn't happen.  Good show VE7SV!

In a casual QSO, one should _expect_ the faster operator to slow down, however.


Also, newcomers should try this web page:

You should be able to find operators willing to give you those first early QSOs.  It's an informal scheduling page for the Straight Key Century Club.

You don't have to have a straight key to participate.

I joined SKCC..My number is 3699. The guys who participate are a real good bunch. Very patient with new ops like me.  SO far I only have 8 qso's, but working for more.   Having a lot of fun with CW.
