The best way to get to know Morse is to have a QSO with another op. String up an inexpensive wire antenna and listen for someone calling CQ then give them a call. No backing out or changing your mind-you've got to make it happen. And, yes, your investment has got to be in your antenna, no ifs, ands, or buts. CW is where all the action is!
