I had a nice, short (very short) lunchtime CW QSO with Rik, KB1BIC. Rik answered my very last CQ on 40M and I had to cut the QSO short in order to get back to work. I was easily able to copy Rik’s fist, very smooth and steady… just the right speed. We were only able to exchange callsigns, RST reports (I gave him a 589, he gave me a 579), names, and QTHs (he is in Ludlow, MA) before I had to say 73. I wish the QSO could have gone longer – it is such a great feeling to be able to get 100% copy on a CW QSO! Gives me hope I can keep improving my speed.
