FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T8D10)

Which of the following can be used to transmit CW in the amateur bands?

A. Straight Key
B. Electronic Keyer
C. Computer Keyboard
D. All of these choices are correct

NJ2X Notes:
We will share with you a secret that all avid DX'ers already know.  Morse Code is an incredibly effective mode for DX (long distance) contacts.  You can make contacts with CW in poor conditions and with weak stations that you simply cannot do with any other mode.  Operating with CW also gives technician license holders access to the HF bands.
