It was great to work you on 40M while you and Mike were operating from the USS REQUIN. I was assigned to 21st Air DIV/NORAD during the Cold War and we received data from Navy Radar Picket vessels for our SAGE computers which fed our scopes. This connection made the QSO even more exciting for me. Great job, John & Mike! 73 John KG9HV - John Schanlaub KG9HV - Lafayette, IN - Nov 25
Thanks John for your great website. I'm a new Ham focusing exclusively on CW. I became a CW QRP believer when I had a 1,200 mile QSO on 1/2 watt. - Ron Gruner, K4RHG - Naples, FL - Nov 22

Just came across your site,very impressed.Years ago I purchased a 9040 MFJ Qrp with matching tuner,and now am wondering what kind of antenna I can use,I will keep an eye on your site and and see what some of the members are using.Many thanks,Matt Furlong - Matt Furlong wd9dmm - Lagrange Park, IL - Nov 16
I'm Tres of QRP ARCI, and just joined NAQCC-#6304. Working on getting my code speed up so I'm comfortable conversing in cw. Also interested in astronomy and wood working. - K5FSE - Cumming, GA - Nov 13
Love CW and operate CW 100% on HF. If it is not CW it just CB. In days of old when men were bold and sideband not invented the word was passed by pounding brass and all were quite contented. - Tom Lufkin W4DAX - Goose Creek, SC - Nov 10
First time visitor to the site and enjoying the visit immensely. Having just scored an original Ten Tec Argonaut 505 (serial number 00036!) from eBay, I'm having a blast in this return to the hobby. - Jeff Bauer, WN1MB - Winsted, CT - Nov 4
Greg KD0SVT - Ellsinore, MO - Oct 30
locator: FN04di Noted your article on MFJ-9040. The article (by KK5R) seems to describe the MFJ-9440 radio with CW filter option. I ended up purchasing a 9040 from a fellow ham based on the article (very well written by the way). Thought you mite want to verify the mode information since it seems missleading and has lead me to purchasing a CW only radio. Cheers and 73 Robert Critch, de Ve3QTH (I suggested to Robert he email the writer of the article since I don't have any info here - K3WWP) - Robert de ve3qth - Barrie, ON - Oct 30

I have been a QRP Ham since my Novice ticket, October 13, 1983. I enjoy your articles in " FIST". I also have limited space and use an Isotron 40/20 combination up 20 feet above my shack. Hope to meet on the bands, 73 - Sam F. Millsap KA5SNG - Stafford, TX - Oct 18

Great website, John. Particularly like the second on antennas! - George Allgood, W4GFA - Walhalla, SC - Oct 9
Your site is awesome. Though I am not as active due to work & family obligations, the few times each week I turn on my hf rig I work or listen solely to CW. Thanks for promoting CW / QRP. 73's Charlie - Charlie / W1CFZ - Tolland, CT - Oct 9
Way back in the 60's, I didn't realize I was a QRPer ~ Transmitters in the Books and Magazines typically had a 6L6 or two, or 6AQ5, and 2N3053 would have been high power. Work the World on QRP, it becomes a strategy, sort of like Chess. Not sure how I stumbled upon NAQCC, but glad I did. - Keith - KC9IH - La Salle, IL - Oct 7

Enjoyed your articles, John. Very informative for this OM who returned to ham radio after a 50+ year hiatus. Still working to get my teen-age code speed back. Tnx agn. Chuck, K6ZIZ - Chuck Heath K6ZIZ - Hopland, CA - Sep 17
John, Thoroughly enjoy your CW site and I'm always soaking up it's valuable information. I've been licensed since the early 1970s and currently have my Extra class. I've been remiss in polishing my CW skills and now that I'm semi-retired I'm spending more time in taking care of that deficiency. I'm fortunate to have a couple very good iambic paddles and a couple straight keys. I've also been able to join Fists and SKCC to always seek more information and get encouragement. As you note in your website ... "get on the air" and continue to practice. Thanks so much for your website and support. 73, Nolan Kienitz KI5IO Plano, TX - Nolan Kienitz - KI5IO - Plano, TX - Sep 12
if i ever get off the nite shift i will see you on the nets - dave gulick AB0LJ - Shelbina, MO - Sep 10
Hi John, my friend since 1965. Your streak is EPIC, in ham radio, in my opinion. You keep pluggin' along, with enthusiasm. My hat is off to you. You've clearly proved your point beyond any doubt OM. I read your FB story of epic from top to bottom this morning, wonderful! I've been occasionally active. Of course, CW ONLY, but with a powerful 100W. My only antennas, ever, have been low dipoles, verticals, mobile and indoor antennas. Your efforts have motivated thounsands of others. Keep it going John. 73 Van - Van WC5D ex-K3ZMI - Roanoke, TX - Sep 1
I am not a broadcaster; just wanted to say THANK YOU for the bit of info I found on your page today from a chat posting; I'm Paul Petersen's friend and greatest fan on Earth, and I learned today that Paul's recording of "Where Is She" was not the original but, rather, Bobby Vee's was the original. Found a YouTube clip of Bobby's version but it's been blocked in the USA due to copyright/royal concerns, so I will now have to see if I can find Bobby's record to see if both he and Paul used the same arrangement. Of course I'm biased but I always end up feeling that Paul's version of any song, even if it's a cover version, out-does the original! Anyway, thank you for my musical history enlightenment for today, August 29, 2012! - George Hewett - Fresno, CA - Aug 29
I truly want to be a member of FIST and I truly want to know CW but with some issues I have and lack of a dedicated teacher, It seems impossible and further more, I want to qrp!!!!! - Keith KI4IES - Butner, NC - Aug 25

Just got back to ham radio after 20 yr absence. Have low budget so QRP and wire antennas sounds like something I might like. Currently working on 40M WAS CW with my TS-940 and a 40M dipole fed with ladder line to a 4:1 balun. 73 Phil, K4SKA - Phil Steege - K4SKA - Amherst, VA - Aug 12

John, I will never complain about my poor antenna location again after seeing what you deal with; even mimicking those darn 4400 volt xfrmrs close to the house. Thanks for your good work with NAQCC. alan - Alan Geller K6ADG - Emerald Hills, CA - Aug 11
I am verry enjoyed to write you on your Guestbook from Morocco. I was radio telegraphist on moroccan marine mercant. I am radio amateur since 1972 my call sign is : "CN8CE" just see: QRZ.com - Zidane Nabil - Casablanca, Morocco - Aug 11
Been following NACQCC for a long time. Worked QRP on and off for many years. Ordering a KX3 soon. Too old for kit building but still like to stumble around in the park with a wire antenna. Regards, Gary (ke2yk) - Gary ke2yk - Shirley, NY - Aug 11

Listening to you on the WAN system vis 145.290 repeater in Gibsonia PA while getting some late night work done. Enjoying the conversation. (Couldn't have been me. I don't operate on any repeaters and only work CW on 160-6 meters, nothing else - K3WWP) - Ken Sprouse WA3FKG - Oakmont, PA - Aug 6
You are a great support to and example of a person loving CW. Nice to meet you! No CW on this end. But, have wanted to for 47 yrs. Now I have a hard time remembering yesterday. My mind is very busy thinking of space travel to getting enough sleep, I know -- crazy. 73 Joe AB8ZK - Joe AB8ZK - Chesapeake, OH - Aug 5

Hi John, Your web site is truely inspiring. I admire your QRP setup and your very creative abilities. You are only two years older than I and you seem to have found the secret to enjoying life.

Always love reading your site. Decided to work on WAS/WAC using CW rather than SSB this time around. Antennas are always a challenge on Oahu. 160 is out, but 40/30/20/15 are very do-able with a simple homemade 34' vertical. Japan is easy; sometimes manage into South Africa and such. Older used and inexpensive gear much more interesting than a linear into a beam. Entire station less than $250 and working world. You are an inspiration. - Mike Zanoni AH6WA - Kaneohe, HI - Jun 15

What does 72 mean? (Same as 73. It's a "cutesy" thing some QRPers use to signify they are a little less than a regular 73 - I NEVER use it myself - K3WWP) I now know about 88. Thanks! 73 Joe AB8ZK - Joe Blazer AB8ZK - Chesapeake, OH - Jun 11

Many tnx for FB QSO. We share similar experiences and views re: CW operation; code was very easy for me. In fact, I tell people that I have an unmarketable skill and was born in the wrong century! - Roy---WA2JLW (ex-KN3HWP) - Pittsboro, NC - May 23

Hello, John. It was nice meeting you on the radio. Thank you for calling. I appreciated your devotion to CW QRP. I myself enjoy CW QRP and used to be a member of FISTS Club (#452)but it got too expensive... Keep up the good work to promote QRP and to preserve CW which should be around for ever. 73... de Carlos CT1BQH - Carlos CT1BQH - Entroncamento, Portugal - May 18

John, thanks for your great site! Although I have been licensed for 30 years, I have never quite managed to operate CW. I have decided that I really want to become proficient in CW and am using G4FON's excellent software. I have read accounts of youngsters learning in a week or two and now managing 40wpm. Ham radio really needs youngsters to get interested of course, but I admit to being a little discouraged by the rapid progress many seem to make, compared to my efforts. Today I read the contribution by Dave - KC2AFK, who's addition pointed out that he started out his CW adventure at 51. This is a great encouragement to me, being not too many years away from his age! Sometimes I get frustrated as I loose concentration while trying to keep copying, but it seems it IS possible! Hopefully I will be able to work many CW fans like yourself before too long; my current work often takes me to interesting parts of the world where there is very little ham activity, so it will be fun to see what contacts can be had QRP. Thanks again, Tony. - Tony GW8PBM - Cardiff, Wales - May 16
Hey, really nice and informativ website! Keep it coming ;) vy 73 de Andreas - Andreas, OE8APR - Seelach, Austria - May 7

I passed my technician element last year (2011) and am working on getting my general class in July 2012. Unemployed so I haven't purchased any gear or rig yet. Hope to join NAQCC after I can copy 15wpm and get my shack set up. Looking for CW xmssns on the Internet to train my ear and copy. 73s - Larry KB3VOC - Reinholds, PA - May 6

I am a new ham--General ticket only a bit over a month--and with only 5-6 hours, have made 30 QSOs, all in North America, but all during daylight. I'll continue to learn more, both on the air and from reading your site. Thanks so much for the advice! - Jeff Gainer KD0QVQ - Grand Junction, CO - Apr 15

It would be great to have you list your wire antennas in use. (All my antennas are not only listed, but described and completely illustrated with pictures. Just look in my Homebrewing section on the Antennas page for all the details - K3WWP) - Bob Morden, VE6RI - Grimshaw, AB - Mar 12
Impressive work John. The site is simple straightforward and packed with GD INFO and encouragement for us OM's re-entering the realm of low pwr CW (QRP). Awaiting a Ten Tec Delta and an MFJ 9020 to begin zero-beating new friends. FISTS and NAQCC thumbs up. 73 CUL - Leroy Radcliffe KI6EAO - Rancho Palos Verdes, CA - Mar 11
Returned to CW after a long hiatus. Generally I'm fed up with the language and rudeness on SSB, especially 20 meters. Enjoyed your web-site and it certainly helped me to improve my CW skills, especially after over 40 years of SSB and FM---Dave K9KBE - Dave Pueringer K9KBE - Germantown, WI - Mar 11

Hi John, Still operating mostly qrp after all these years (first QRP rig was the Heathkit HW7 in the early 70s). Must admit to some QRO HF on emergency nets (100 watts on an old TS-140s). Current rigs are the FT-817 and SW-20. Currently building the Hendricks PFR-3. Congrats on you continuing daily QRP QSO streak. You are amazing! - Mike K7RVX - Syracuse, UT - Jan 25

Hello John, I think net month will be a year that I worked you and if i'm wrong on that then it will be 2 years. I'm still shooting for at least 1 QSO per day with the Hustler mobile setup I worked on late in the summer. I use the FT 857-D but turn it down to 5 watts. Wishing you a very joyful 2012 with lots of CW DX BOB AF2Q - BOB LECH - Lawrenceville, NJ - Jan 4
Hello John, It must have been a year since I worked you on CW. It looks like the sun may give in a little so working CW will be much better with no QSB.. I made some DX but just enough to confirm calls and I worked a lot of TX and AZ with 5 watts and the indoor loop. I keep pressing my list members to get on the rig and try for any QSO:-) Keep up the excellent job of keeping CW alive 72/73 BOB AF2Q - BOB AF2Q - Lawrenceville, NJ - Jan 2
