Here are the charts I used in Ask Dave 14, “Anatomy of a CW QSO,” by request. These PDF charts walk you through a typical exchange for a brief conversation in Morse Code.

I hope the charts help you be more comfortable on CW!
The thing to remember? A CW QSO can be scary the first few times. But once you get some experience and your speed starts going up, you’ll find it is FUN. You’ll also find the exchange goes a lot further afield than just name-QTH-RST-rig-WX. 🙂
Dave….THAT is exactly why I didnt get my novice ticket back in 1971 and waited until 2018 so I could just TALK my way though a contact. Haha. This posting deserves a deposit into the tip jar!
73s and Merry Christmas
Very helpful to have a written QSO format. Thanks.
