First CW contacts with X108G Outdoor Version

Hooked the straight key up to the X108G tonight and called CQ on 7.050 just after listening to W1AW for a while on 7047.5.

Put the Czech straight key on, using a windom set the power to 5 watts, cw delay at 250 ms and called CQ, Reverse Beacon Network showed the following:
I watched the FT857 blue light flash in time to my cw sent from the X108G.
I was called by Art W2NRA in NY and he gave me 339 and he was a 559.
I was then called after Art by Danny N7DC in VA who gave me a 559 and he was also a 559.

A good first test for the X108G
