from 5th to 9th Oktober I was in Poland and took part in the High Speed Telegraphy Championship of IARU Region 1. It was my first attempt and a great experience. The competition consists of 4 parts: receiving (1 minute groups of 5 figures, letters and mix), transmitting (1 minute groups of 5 figures, letters and mix) and ham radio related stuff like MorseRunner (a pileup of 10 minutes) and RufzXP (50 callsign to type correctly). The results of this competition are now online here :
Categorie A, C, E and G are the different ages of females. Have a look and see, whats possible! The girls have all a callsign and some are even active on the bands! So perhaps you will also try some steps in CW with higher speed? Don't be shy - its fun! Perhaps we will meet at the next High Speed Telegraphy Championship - its the world championship in Ocotber 2011 in Bielefeld/Germany.
