In reply to M0YDH:
Conclusion - CW is very hard. I’ll keep trying.
Please do David. It gets easier the more times you do it. I still have the occasional “bad CW” day and I have been doing it for over 30 years. CW opens up whole new world of radio communications and will provide you with a lifetime of satisfying radio contacts.
PS I am jealous of your proximity to the WBs. They remain my favourite set of summits. It’s just a shame that the Welsh have stolen WB-001.
