  2. Grazie Gerry per tua cortesia e pazienza.
    Avrai capito che sono poco pratico con il cw.
    Nel lontano 1969 ero operatore radio nel esercito (solo fonia)
    Adesso mi fa piacere imparare la telegrafia, alleniamo il cervello, HI!!
    Farò molti esercizi, sicuramente ci collegheremo ancora

  9. Hi Gerry: A pleasure to meet you on CW Com. A question: You have an interesting technique when using a key. You tap. I put my forefinger and thumb around the knob. Have I been wrong all this time - or - is it just another style? Most everyone I know uses 2 fingers. Was this standard for the Royal Navy? I usually use an Ameco K-4 key - one of the most basic keys ever. I also use US Navy sparkproofs - all in black with spackle finish. In any case, a very nicely done web site to support CW Com and your key collection is admirable and remarkable! Thank you for sharing all your lore! 73 es dit dit de N2KZ Karl Zuk Katonah, NY USA

  10. Hi Karl
    Thanks for the comments. My "technique" ... I thought I was the only one who sent morse on a straight key this way, but I have found another guy on Youtube who does the same thing. The "conventional" way, using two fingers and a thumb, seemed to me to be "awkward" and during training in the R.N. I got my knuckles rapped hard many times.... until they noticed I could send better "my way"... the technique is NOT R.N. Standard ! ! but for me.... it seems to work, and I can send for much longer periods at a "reasonable speed" of about 20 to 25 wpm. If I try "conventional" way, that comes down to about 8 - 10 wpm, with many errors ! ! !.

  11. I really need some help. I got a Linux Mint 18.3 setup with Wine, and when I start the program it sets the WPM in settings to 50, then I have to reduce it to 5 in order to get it to work.

    As I start keying away, it will adjust, but even if I "lock" the WPM, it still sets it way too high on its own. I key about 27 WPM and it will set me to 40 or so. It's really annoying, can someone please help?

    And assistance will be appreciated greatly!

    1. It depends what kind of key you are using... If using paddle key. then you should first set the speed on the "transmission" tab at around 20WPM... (unlocked). on the "Morse Key " tab... set as IAMBIC & Looping Method After doing some test transmission... such as "BROWN BREAD TASTES BEST WITH BUTTER AND STRAWBERRY JAM" Should, allow the timings to be read by the program to give good copy on screen.. if still having problems... try using "RESET METHOD" .
      Normally it is recommended that paddle keys should remain "unlocked" .. but... depending on how skilled you are at transmitting with a steady speed, you may find it works better when locked.

      If using a straight key.. set to COMPORT and MANUAL .. and RESET METHOD setting the WPM at about 18 to 20 wpm do the test. then when good copy you can "lock" the speed.
      Email contact address is on the blogsite if you still have problems.

  13. CWCOM seems to use 2 web sites in the back end.
    The one called brasspounder.com is now listed as malicious and phishing.
    The other, mrx.ham-radio-op.net seems totally dead.
    So... Looks like this was a great idea, but now probably dangerous and not suggested.
    Has anyone else been successful with this recently?

    1. CWCOM does not have an "official" website... the author has discontinued servicing it, hence my blogsite https://morsepower.blogspot.com/ Which you are now posting on.
      The sites you mention have probably suffered a similar fate... however.. CWCOM, written for Windows 95, many years ago, is still working on a daily basis, and I have been QRV daily for the past 5 years, last year I racked up over 1100 qso`s in 12 months.
      Give it a try.. !
