I've done the same on ebay, got a 50's champion for my
vintage station and 80's never used original for my
ICOM 765. Both work great! Had to slow down the
Original with the vari-speed, works great! I also had
to go from paddle to bug. Does take some practice.
Still alot of fun! Also use SK most of the time now!
Joining the new CW groups has revitelized my interest.
Used to chase DX until the sun went out.
CU on the air.
