Thanks guys...  actually I have yet to do any CW on the air 
just yet...  still learning the alphabet and numbers...

I was asking because I wondered whether I would be seeing 
the noise issue when I start making QSOs and, if so, thought 
it would be good to plan ahead, instead of waiting until 
then to figure it out.

Thus, it sounds like I need to learn how to run and adjust 
the QSK circuit.  There is a local contester who has both 
the Omni VI and VII in his shack and does a lot of CW ... 
and he seems quite friendly on the air.   I will have to 
take him to lunch...

Thanks for the uptake.  I figure it will be hard enough 
making mh first CW contacts, so I want to resolve the 
hardware setup and technique ahead of that.
