80m CC CW contest

Finally had a go in the CW leg of the RSGB 80m Club Calls contest. This is a set of contests that runs for about 6 months of the year and has three legs each month. SSB, Data and CW. Each contest is on 80m and lasts for an hour and a half.
I have only been back doing CW for 3 months so it has been a steep learning curve and I need to listen a couple of times to get the information before I send. I managed 45 contacts though and for me it was an achievement. I will be back next month for more and I hope the conditions pick up as they were not brilliant this month.
