what a thrill, this weekend I participated in my first contest, CQ WW CW! Well, stricly speaking it is my second contest, I had fun for a few hours with the WA state’s QSO party, the Salmon run, earlier in September.

Given that my CW skills aren’t a full match to the typical 25-35WPMs, I limited myself to Search&Pounce. I’ll do more practicing with MorseRunner to at some point be able (and having the confidence) to actually run a frequency (for the non-hams: running the frequency means staying on one frequency and keep calling CQ so other stations will contact you)
