Wow, this is my first post, I feel like it's my first contact as a Novice.

Learning the morse code is easy using the code tapes (CD's now?) available from the ARRL. It is very rewarding for those of us mic shy types.

Just got my general license back last spring after letting my license lapse and being off the air for 10 years. I'm having a ball working mainly CW on 20 and 40 meters. Still haven't set up my rig in the Airstream, but that's only a matter of time. The desk in our 22' CCD will be just perfect for my rig.

Is there now, or has there ever been an Airstream Net? My gear is currently down (thanks to a tree that took out my Windom wire), but I do have a Yaesu FT-817 (QRP) that can do it all. I'm mostly on Phone, but do CW on 40m & 80m on the very rare occasion.

Echolink and IRLP are both great for long range communications for us Tech class folks. However, now that the code requirement is being dropped, it should be easier for us to move up to General class.

The more on HF the merrier. I am glad to see the FCC make that move in dropping the element 1 (morse code) requirement. I got my ham ticket in '78 and never understood why one had to copy faster than 5wpm for higher than a novice ticket, i.e. 13wpm for general and 20 for Extra. I got my Extra with the 5wpm requirement.

Look for me on HF when you get there!

73,
