Thanks, Martin. I'll save my money and go for the HF rig. You, too, Zack. Good advice.
HT Question W0SJF on 17/3/17
Currently have a Baufeng Dual Band HT used mainly for club net meetings. I'm working towards my General License and was wondering if there is any use in getting a Tri Band HT that will get into the HF frequencies or just bite the bullet and get a "real" radio and antenna. OR -- should I get both?

Thanks. W0SJF

How do I break the habit of freezing when I can't remember the letter I just heard and go on to the next one? When a new letter comes up in code, and I can't quickly remember the letter or number, I'm like a deer caught in the headlights.

Many have told me one of the best ways to learn the ins and outs of HAM, and to help learn Morse Code, is to just listen. I remember when I was a kid my dad bought me a receiver that brought me hours and days of enjoyment just listening. I'm not ready to drop a bundle on a decent transceiver yet, so are there any portable receivers out there that are worth it? When I go to Amazon and look at them my eyes glaze over and I can't make up my mind.

Thanks.

Thanks for the response. I'll try a few shorter sessions each day.
