Hello John. Quick note to say that my cw streak is now at 5 year! Thanks for the inspiration! I have a long way to go to catch you...hihi... 73/WR9H/Herb - WR9H/Herb - Rockford, IL - Nov 22
John, congratulations for mantaining such a CW devoted webpage as yours. There lots of information in the Web, articles and books, about this subject, but sometimes, in the end, all we get is plenty of divergent information, on some topics. Here, at least, I've found a little peace of mind regarding some details of proper CW procedures. By the way... I noticed you removed from your site the webpage about Procedure Signals. Why did you do that ? I know that the Procedures page is still there, but you see, some people (aham) like to know more than they really need, hi hi. BEST 73. (The lists are still there - CW/CW Procedures/Lists - http://k3wwp.com/cw_ss_list_abbr.html - K3WWP) - Artur CT1FRC - Entroncamento, Portugal - Nov 16

John, you really had no worries about your presentation to BCARA on 10 Nov 2015. Great to be laid back and comfortable. Glad you have the DX streak still going. Nice to be the first AB3 prefix on your list. Keep on pounding brass. - Dave Taylor AB3MO - Slippery Rock, PA - Nov 11

Good Morning John, after 47 years in public education I retired and we moved to Florida. I haven't gotten my radios and antennas back together yet, but soon and hope to meet up with you again on CW from Florida ! 73s Bruce WA3GNW - BRUCE - WA3GNW - Jacksonville, FL - Oct 11
Wonderful story John, I spent at least an 1/2 hour reading of your exploits. Outstanding. You must have quite a system to keep track of all the things you do. How do you do it? You have inspired me to get on the air some more. Worked VE2DHS tonight on 40 CW and chatted for quite a while. My "streak" is now 1 day Hihi! I should say I haven't gone to 5 w (using K3 at about 90 watts) but will give that a try tomorrow. Bands are not great now. Been licensed since 1967. Thanks again! - Harris K9RJ - Alamo, CA - Oct 3

QRP with wire antennas only. I run the KX3, LD-5, and HB-1A transceivers depending on what I am doing. KX3 is main rig. Was QRT for several years and came back big time this year going for DXCC with 5 watts. Well on my way. You have a very nice website. - Dave Edger N3CI - Choctaw, OK - Jul 15
I came to see a list of operations signals in Morse code. Still hope to find it, if it is still here.

K3WWP, Thank you for this site and for your long standing promotion of qrp and morse code. K6ZQ - Jack K6ZQ - Daly City, CA - Apr 4
Hi Guys I am just getting back on the air after a break of 15 years. I have always had an interest in QRP, in so much that even with my QRO Rigs I used to turn the power down to QRP levels. I did build and still possess a Lake DTR 7 40M CW Only Kit, and can still remember the thrill of working stations who gave me the same signal report as I'd given them using this little rig whilst they were using rigs costing in the thousands of $$$$$. I have just aquired a very nice fully loaded Elecraft K2 and so am looking forward at getting active again in our wonderful hobby. Hope to work some of you soon! 73's Nick G0HFL - Nick Major G0HFL - Earl Shilton, England - Mar 26

Hi John, saw your site referenced and dropped by, remembering your call and us having had several qso's over the years. Your log says we had 11 qso's between 1993-2008, on 160-80-40 & 30 M. I became inactive in 2009 for about 3-1/2 years due to work but I'm retired now. I'm going to keep my ears open for you and we can pick up where we left off last.COMMENTS - Roy Lincoln WA4DOU - Elm City, NC - Mar 26
