   Why I like CW:

I think much of the pleasure of CW is that it is an art as much as a technical mode for transferring information over radio. Once we lose the art element of CW operating we will have lost the very soul of our beloved mode of communications. Along with the art tends to come a degree of respect for, and courtesy to, those also engaged in CW operating.

The self satisfaction from having mastered this skill is so rewarding.

It is not the class of license that the Amateur holds,
but the class of the Amateur that holds the license.

In days of old, when ops were bold and sidebands not invented
The word would pass by pounding brass, and all were well contented.
