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…
SOTA using CW is both scary & exilleraing...if you're learning CW it's a fun way to work lots of stations without a huge vocabulary. Also, you're in charge (you're the DX) so you choose the speed of operation. More fun than contests (allegedly). Ask a SOTA Op about the QSO format https://t.co/oFR9cvGrEr
Should have taken Manning with his key skills...just sayin'... https://t.co/HgGWSoDOUU
