TTE:  We had a 3/8" paper tape feed machine that scribed dits and dahs up to 1,000wpm!

Then we would pull it through at around 40wpm to transcribe the tape.  This meant learning code by sound and also visually.  Fun twist!

My hand is shaking too much to carry on. Actually, I’m shaking all over

How many QSOs did it take to get past that? I get like that, and it's not fun...

Hi Rick, when everything is "just so" I am able to get CW qsos pretty calmly. Its when I turn on the radio and I have not even had my morning coffee, or my daughter is pestering me, or the wife hurrumphing that I am not helping with the dinner, or the pen won't work or there's no paper....that it all goes pear shaped.  Roll Eyes
