I'm not an OT yet (at least I hope so...),
but I still have those paper logs of the ARRL CW
(1974-1977) when I worked the states on 40m with 50W and dipole!
(W3LPL was always in my log, though....! big signal, since then)
and yes, rates were not so high in those days,
but I had a lot of fun however.

Bob, I2WIJ
