CW Boot Camp

In April 2016, David G7AGI organised a get together for us to share experiences and knowledge of learning and using CW. We all did a bit of 'show and tell' and got to try different straight keys and paddles. 

We had a 30m station set up for ‘live’ CW contacts with a simple dipole folded around the ceiling and completed lots of practice QSOs around the room simply using practice oscillators. You can read the full story here.

What we’re saying to the Twitterverse…

EU #lidscw operators looking for a solid QRS fist should keep an ear out for Helge, LB4MI…he started learning in January this year and was an absolute pleasure to have a QSO with tonight.

The Straight Key Sprint Europe (SKSE) this evening has a slot at the start and end for QRS firsts to call in...what not listen out for some QRS calls.
