Oh come on...cw is like anyting else..practice is the key...yeah I remember the encryption stuff...we only used that when our ship to shore, FSK systems went down..then we not only had to know how to encrypt msgs, but also send it out CW and then decrypt them...now that was alot of fun...

Hi Mark. Just joined but we've already met. November 1975 in the North Sea off Scotland?? I was on the USS Independence CV-62 and we traded sides with the USS Denebola AF-56 at night in heavy seas. My first of four collisions at sea ( 3 US, 1 USSR ) and the most scary.

Were you a radioman on the Indy....I just got off watch in radio and had mid rats went to my rack and bang...the collision alarm went off...I have pictures of that mess...our skipper Capt. Dewey got grounded after that and I got out of the Navy on our return to Norfolk Dec 10th of 75. I was on the Denebola from Oct 72 - Dec 75...Great memories...check out our Webiste at http://www.ussdenebola.org...we just had our first reunion...she was decomissioned March of 76 and our 1st reunion was three years ago in Norfolk, ten 2nd one in Charleston...next one is to be in Baltimore...was on the committe for the first two...lots of work....yep, that collision was in the North Atlantic somewhere north of the English Channel...If I remember...you brought back some good memories of the service. How well I remember playing cat and mouse with the Russians when doing replenishment in Kithira, off the Island of Crete....
