Jim's class, the final!

Whilst this is the final from Jim, it isn't really! It's like the "finals" we used to use to sign off in the old AM days, usually closely followed by a "final final" which was in turn followed by a "final finnal final", That could go on for ages, much like Jim's class. There has been a great following of this method and also an interest expressed for a continuum. So, please email Jim if you are keen  enough to take part:

However, do remember the success is down to YOU. If you don't use the BIG P word, every day, progress will be slow.

25wpm Beginners CW Week 20 report

telegraphiste

 

The final week of the course took place on Tuesday evening 8-9pm on GB3NB. The group of five have now been through a whole bunch of sample QSO formats with selected overs from real QSOs in the past. The whole idea is to use this course as a starting point for listening on the bands and becoming familiar with the phrases and abbreviations, which are often the bits which cause CW to seem impenetrable.

I hope others who have not remained for the full course will take advantage of the MP3 files on the club website to practice during the rest of the summer lockdown. Try sending the list of abbreviations with your paddle, not keying the rig of course, and I guarantee that the more you practice sending these common abbreviations, the easier it will be to spot them on the air.

During the rest of the summer I shall use the Tuesday evening slot on the GB3NB repeater to have revision sessions. I hope that by the end of the year you will be feeling confident enough to have a QSO on the bands, and it’ll be how much time you can spend using and listening to CW that determines how likely that is for you.

"My Favourite Morse Key".

 

The following pictures are from Chris G3XVL. The first is a Danish military straight key and the secon features a few of the keys that Chris owns.

Unfortunately they were only thumbnails but I think they are still identifiable.

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 3 people taking part, still great fun however.
.
So, join us at 1000 on Monday mornings and have some fun.
