    I don't really know what the Ultimate3S kit is all about yet... but still
    trying to put together the basic setup to get further than 2Meter systems.

    If you're really committed to learning the code, then I guess you might have an incentive when it's the only mode your radio wil
    operate. I wonder if that would've worked for me.

    I am in a bad spot. My ft991a even on high power has such a problem getting out.
    I've used ft8 and made contacts on a few bands, and even contacted japan. I'm in the USA west coast.
    CW I practiced using a program called moris mania. Its pretty good for learning.
    I still have a long way to go.

    The price is right, anyway. I like the options that my HF rig gives me, but a kit like that would be fun to build and use for a


    Some cheaper options with smaller package when using CW. So there is an incentive. :)

    If you haven't done so already, check out the free program called Morse
    Runner. It is primarily for contest training, but a lot of fun for learning what it's like to be on the air...especially when you let the program
    simulate QSB, QRM and multiple stations caling.

    I would also suggest making a few contacts with POTA stations. The format is rather "standardized" and as a hunter, you are very limited to what you have
    to send, once you hear your call come back from the activator...just send
    them a signal report and 2-letter state abbreviation and you're all set!

    If you ever hear me (KB2IOF), I'd be glad to work you!

    I'll take a look at that program.

    Thanks Jerry.

    I'm going to get a keyer. .. Dang a lot of them are expensive, more so than I thought they would be. I'll get a decent $100 keyer. I've been waiting for an MFJ that was about $50, but its a little larger than I wanted for hiking. I found what looks like a nice key on ebay, and it should last for several years.

    Morse runner is a really good program. Highly recommended.

    I've got a few keyers of various types. I picked up the Vibroplex code
    warrior junior for like $100. I think it's $120 now. I think it's fantastic
    for the money, though maybe a little too light of a base.
