There is a new club starting up in cyberspace. It is called CW Ops and I first learned of its existence while reading JA1NUT’s blog translation link on my splash page. You can find their web pages here . Have a look at the Bylaws, Stated Purpose and get a feel for the language and sense of the place. If you are an aficionado of Morse, enjoy chatting via CW and enjoy the whole RF environment in general well you should pursue membership. Ask around. Chat up your CW op friends. Lets keep the “Glue” that is Morse going strong.
Our daily CW practice schedule continued throughout the Holiday Period. We went through the motions but minds were elsewhere. In fact our quest to improve was in a general funk through the whole of the Holiday period. We found ourselves back at 30 wpm and concentration flagging. However, with the new year and interest renewed I am please to report we are continuing with vigor and yesterday found is both as crisp and enthused as 33 wpm can take us. Both would like to do well balanced, rhythmic code at a speed of at least 35 wpm before we stop pushing. This last year has seen very slow progress with (speaking for myself at least) some small improvements and many steps backward. I cannot recall a day of missed practice and that is a good thing. We are working on three years of CW practice now and looking forward to many more.
Thanks for reading my Blog. Best, Chas W5PG
