Code buddies are expected to have a reasonably nice fist and a willingness to devote some time to help others develop a nice fist as well as proficiency in sending and receiving. High speed is not essential, accuracy is of higher importance. We need to know at what speeds you like to operate, and the means for someone to get in touch with you to arrange a sked, your e-mail address, call, qth, a word or two about yourself and name you go by . That info could go direct to where it will be set up for uniformity and then posted to code Buddies. Any time you wish you can be deleted from the list, it's by no means permanent.
