First CW QSO….?

I think I just had my first CW QSO with N8DFM on 40 M – but the band was weak and so was my copy – but I’m pretty sure what took place can ultimately be considered a QSO.

I got my Bencher paddle working and I think it does the trick much better than my MFJ straight key.

I have a lot more work to do on CW, but I’m glad I’m getting on the air and giving it a try.
