Greetings Noël, hope you like it here!
Both of you: PLEASE do yourself the favor to not learn slow CW like I did years ago. The CW I first learned was so slow it allowed me to (briefly) think about each letter as it came in. Once thoroughly practiced, that thinking is a terrible habit to unlearn.
But unlearn it I had to, to reach subconscious decoding and decent CW speed.
Research Koch method. Shameless plug: One place to read it up is my https://gitlab.com/4ham/koch-method-real-words/-/blob/master/README.md .
For each new character I train a lot until I’m fluent in copying, and it does not require any effort. I do a lesson about every day for 15’. But I’m still frustrated of my slow progression
Also greetings from Berlin to Paris. Maybe we could do a capital to capital QSO one day, e.g., with CW or #JS8!
If you like #sota, check #gma. Its a related program where every hill can be activated that peaks at least 100 m above see level and has a name in an official map. Even flat Berlin has a few of those! You can even yourself enter any such hill into the database. https://cqgma.org/ has details on GMA (and lots of similar fun programs).
