Yesterday, my daughter, Jennifer, KK4RTF, got into the Rookie Roundup at my urging, and made her first CW contacts ever!
She has been operating here with the Goat Farm group for about the last year and a half in M/M RTTY contests, 'just to help her Dad out'.
She acquired an interest and this past spring got her Tech license, but until yesterday, she had not been on the air with CW.
She did have the benefit of being able to use a station with 'robust' antennas.
Thanks to everyone for the contacts, and sending at appropriate speeds. Many familiar calls were logged. She did find N5RZ's name of 'Gator' amusing.
Steve, NR4M and Jennifer, KK4RTF
