Found myself in your log two places. Almost all of my casual operating is CW, and each FD I find I make more points in a couple of hours on CW than the rest of the group on SSB. Gotta love CW. Some QRP but also boatanchor ... the Valiant is a wonderful CW transmitter. - Jim Krause AB4CZ - Norcross, GA - Nov 25

John; I was just about to shut down the radio Monday night when I heard your call. I gave you a shout and just as quickly you came back, you quickly faded away. You came back again at the QTH part of the message but after that I could not hear you and you could not hear me. Oh Well. Next time, hopefully soon.

Just found your wewbsite today. Was visiting the NAQCC site when I say your entry. QRP is also one of my great hobbies (Argonaut, Pixie II, MFJ SSB/CW QRP -9440- rig plus others) and for antennas, I use a B&W Folded Dipole and a GAP Titan. Now all I need to do is set aside time to get on CW, most of my operating time is taken up on 20/17M when they are open and 75M chatting with a long-time buddy. 73 ES GUD DX - Robert Lunsford, KK5R - USA - Jun 8
Nice web site, John. Keep up the great work! CW lives!!! - Roger Cowan, K9VP - Richmond, IN - Jun 8

Grid Square FM09wm. I'm interested in getting on the air after a long hiatus. I have an old HW-8 and will be installing a longwire antenna at my QTH. Are there any clubs around that have kit building projects/assistance? Thanks. - Gary KC8IQZ - USA - Apr 29

Thanks for the site. I'm just beginning to learn Morse. - Terry Phillips KE7ZZZ - Corvallis, MT - Feb 12
Stumbled across your site while learning about CW. Started K7QO's CW course a couple of days ago. Have always wanted to learn morse, just to have the knowledge, finally decided to do it. Am mildly interested in QRP CW, maybe I'll meet you on the air if I get into it. Thanks for your site!! - Dan Rogers - Notta Ham (yet?) - Boise, ID - Feb 7
I enjoy your website. I hope to work you one of these days. Been a ham since '93, work CW for a few years. I got away from it but am back operating CW mode about 98-98.5% & that includes the 2m FM local nets & chats. I finally have a decent station with a Ten Tec Orion 1-100 watts. I built the Ten Tec 40m QRP rig and love it. Drop me an email and maybe we can try to set up a sked some time for fun. 73 de AC8AP - Alan Shafer AC8AP - Milan, OH - Feb 5
Looking forward to working a lot of CW in the future. - Fred McCutchen - W4FMC - Tampa, FL - Feb 2
John, I just sent you a letter and hope you get it in a few days. After logging into your diary I have been brought up to date on the CW activities. I have only a two meter right now, however, I have an enclosed porch in my condo that is bout 20 feet long and 10 feet wide with a false ceiling that could hold either a long wire or a dipole. I am on a limited amount of money but hope to get back on the air soon. I will check QRZ for any thing I might be able to buy. I have two logs filled with CW contact's and miss the many hours I spent on them. Hoping to hear from you. Sincerely, Jim Dennis N4RKR - Jim Dennis N4RKR - Clearwater, FL - Jan 30
Hi John , just checking in to see whats new on your webpage. As usual it's FB. I'm a month late... but I'm wishing you a Very Happy and Healthy New Year. One of my resolutions for the year is to be a lot more active on the bands and try to make at least one CW contact per day. So far, so good :) 73 from N7BDY Bob Tadlock - N7BDY Bob Tadlock - Kingman, AZ - Jan 28

Thanks for the great Web site, and for your continual encouragement to everyone to get on the air each and every day using CW and simple antennas. (PS: I'm trying for the QSO-A-DAY award...). - Cotter KJ6EB - Corinth, MS - Jan 9
Hi John, After 30 years of fun and games working almost 100% CW on everything from 160 to 6, I find myself in a small apartment and off the air, except for when I do my hikes. I am glad you're still keeping the streak going and I hope we can work someday when the wx warms a bit and I am out in the woods somewhere. 73 de Vin KR2F - Vin KR2F - Woodstock, NY - Jan 9
Happy New Year, John, and thanks so much for all your work on this and the NAQCC websites in support of our favorite operating mode - QRP CW! Looking forward to lots of QRP CW activity in the coming year (and an increase in sunspot actvity as well)! 73! - Geoff W1OH - Waquoit, MA - Jan 6
Happy New Year! I hope you'll soon be filling up this guestbook page with your wonderful comments as you've done each year for the past 13 years. Thanks. - John, K3WWP - Kittanning, PA - Jan 1
