RE: CW



Just your fingers and your brain? sounds like sign language. What you are
referring
to requires such 'artificail' props as a key, an oscillator, an amplifier,
coax,
an antenna, a speaker, electricity, and God knows what else. You are being
curiously
selective in what technology you are embracing. Yes, CW is elegant and
nostalgic 
and all that, just like a horse and carriage, but can a human operate CW at
9600 
baud? Wake up, technology moves forward, those who embrace it will be more
efficient.
