Re: Why knobs???
- Speaking of left-handed code ("sinister CW"), I'm a lefty but use a
right-handed V'plex Original with the just the knob/finger piece
reversed so my left index finger is on the knob and my left thumb is on
the paddle. I guess it never occurred to me that I was sending code in
an opposite fashion than the crowd, i.e., my finger for the dits and
thumb for the dahs. It's just how I learned and never gave it a second
thought! You people really send dits with your thumbs? How odd . . .
