Is Anybody there?

I never receive any feedback on items here so am wondering if anybody reads this or looks at any of the Utubes I mention. It would be nice to know I am not typing to myself!

Do take a look at this Utube.
It shows a key used by the best high speed telegraphers who belonged to the Soviet Union's "Special Radio Services." In English the name is: "bug with two levers." But it's much more than a two lever semiautomatic key. It's a semiautomatic "bug" with the addition of a sideswiper type dash lever. Watch in this video how the index finger moves between the two finger pieces causing first one to send a dash then the other like a sideswiper does.

You think YOU have problems with a paddle?

I shall stay with my single lever paddle!!

CW OPS Open

.
Several locals took part in these four sessions and some really good scores materialised. Both Peter M0RYB and Phil G4LPP beat me! Very frustrating with poor antennas.
Stations taking part weere:
Roger G3LDI, Phil G4LPP, Jim G3YLA, Peter, M0RYB, Chris G4CCX, Dick G3WRJ, Mike G4DYC and John G4PFZ. John was taking part for the first time but he did very well, and enjoyed the event.
.
Results will come out eventually and we will see how Team UK got on.

G2OT Old Timers net, excellent CW. 3525 Tuesday AM
.
This net is a steady speed of around 15wpm, mostly using straight keys, but the CW is exemplary and will provide very useful practice to those trying to use a keyboard for the first time.
