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.

What we’re saying to the Twitterverse…
