Since I have got my first license in 1982 I was interested in
Morse telegraphy (CW).
During the service in the German army I began  a self-study
in telegraphy. This led me to my novice class license  in
1984 – After that I improved my skills on the bands and got
my extra class in 1985 – My FISTS No.: 16977

I like CW very much from the first “Dit” and still after more than 35 years.

Here are 3 Morse keys (paddles). Most of the time I am using the Begali Magnetic
