I love CW. I enjoy both International Morsecode and Japanese Morsecode. As a non-native English speaker, CW chat by English language is a big challenge for me. But QRQ chat by English sounds very cool!
Today's QSO -- K0ALT
Today I called CQ as usual on 7026 by using bugkey. After several CQ calling with 200Watts QRO, K0ALT Christine kindly called me! Her signal from 100W with loop antenna was not so big here in Tokyo but the 40m band was fortunately quiet this evening so that I could solid copy. :-) She said temp is minus 25C. I doubt my ears and asked her "Do you live on the top of montain?". She said she lives in valley but it is *000FT. (I couldn't copy 1st digit due to QSB but any way higher than 1000FT(or 300m). According to Google map her QTH silt, CO is very mountaneous area and seems very high altitude. Since it was 1st QSO we finished with very short rubber stamp + alpha QSO but it was very nice meeting on the air. I could imagine the landscape of Silt city of Colorad where I've never been.
