I've been wanting to learn Morse Code and started using a Koch training app on my phone. I got m and k down...onto r!
Looking at the band chart there is a small piece at the bottom of 2m that is for CW only. Do folks actually use this? How do I hook up the key/paddle to my Yaesu FT-2900R? Does it just hook up to the handheld mic jack?
Is there some kind of small one I could use along with an HT?
For the CWers out there...should I start with a straight key or go to the bug / sideswipe type?
