Guys,

To get my Extra, I had to demonstrate my CW sending skill in downtown Manhattan to a very old FCC officer. (I will be 70 in January) :-(

I love CW, I do only CW and RTTY contesting, I don't do phone. I don't have mic connected to my HF radio.

Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year.

73s

Says it all!
