Jim's Tuesday evening Class.
.
25wpm Beginners CW Week 19 report

 

telegraphiste

It was a nice turnout for the morse class on the GB3NB repeater on Tuesday evening 8-9pm . We had six ops who ‘decloaked’ and called in, but hopefully a few other secret listeners tagging along out of sight!

We are in the final stages of the series of sessions and next week is the final one of the planned 20-week course. I shall probably carry on with revision sessions into the summer if there is interest. You can do a lot yourselves by using the text and MP3 files on the NARC website to reinforce the course material.

It is obviously ideal if you can listen on the bands and try to hear those phrases we have been learning and even have a go at head copying to get away from the physical pressure of having to write fast (and legibly) on paper.

The homework is to visit the CW sections of the bands and collect five callsigns before next week. In fact for anyone learning CW, the best you can possibly do is listen on the bands and head copy stuff… no pressure to capture the whole thing, just attempt to get a few nuggets and it’ll get easier with PRACTICE.

Matt M0PTO has instigated Morse via Utube in what he calls Lockdown Morse.
Matt is a very good CW operator, and hopefully some of you can take advantage of his online course.
This is the link to his introductory video. Do take a look!

Well done Matt! Way to go! About time you did some of the CC contests for the club!

"My Favourite Morse Key".
.
The one featured this week has seen long service! It comes from an engineer and ATU specialist, a man of few words, who doesn't suffer fools gladly and will offer his opinion, and good advice on your SSB audio if you want an honest report. It belongs to David G3MPN. He can often be found skulking on the DX bands and working DX at all hours, although not too unsocial hours.

Headcopy Class is going well.
.
EISH5 These groups are just a bit of fun really. It concentrates the mind on patterns.If you have problems with this mix, don't worry too much because it is highly unlikely that they will ever be sent in general covesation. So don't despair, even the most skilled have problems with groups like this.
However, it is all good Practice, that Big P word again!
This week we had 4 people taking part, still great fun however.
.
So, join us at 1000 on Monday mornings and have some fun.

The homework I set has mostly been achieved now, although some Qs were a lot less than desired! GOTA is the accronym to apply here, Get On The Air and make more Qs.

Ever wondered what those horrible "noises" are sitting on our bands? Take a listen to some of these, you may recognise them!
