Sounds promising!!

It most certainly is but a dark cloud is hanging over me at the moment, a visitation from Ofcom in regards to the potential A/VDSL interference which if found to be the case then it is a "tough luck as we won't do anything approach from Ofcom" as reliably informed on the phone before hand and for me this means the loss of the HF bands thanks to S9+10dB of white noise carrier with no notches. :cry:

I've been re learning after 40 years ...surprising that I can still recognise a lot of characters.

This site recommends learning at 25 wpm with bigger gaps as it's the musical sound you recognise not the dots and dashs .....don't know if that's true ...I originally learnt at age 17 with a set of LPs which you varied the turntable speed to speed up the lessons :D

Thank you, Steve, currently I am awaiting my visitation from Ofcom and then work from that point as that is at the moment the underlying issue.

The beauty of cw is that even if ofcom throw you to the wolves, a length of wire and a pocket sized rig together with a key and a paper pad amd youre off! Portable ops with cw arr a most enjoyable way of working while you look for a new house!
