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.ย 

We had a 30m station set up for โ€˜liveโ€™ CW contacts withย 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…
