Jim's classes have completed, but he is continuing with revision. That is very encouraging!
Good to see several keeping up with him too.

25wpm Beginners CW revision 30Jun20

telegraphiste

 

The revision sessions continue to attract a small core of CW improvers who are becoming quite at home with 25wpm CW. This week on GB3NB at 8pm we covered the final set of abbreviations. It is all good progress and there were some very competent performances.

Next week it will be bigger sections of QSOs, so that over the next week or two we will build up a good working knowledge of typical QSO sequences so that you can venture forth onto the bands without worrying about what the other op might send to you.

Continuous listening on the bands is the single best way of moving your skill set forwards so, as I always suggest, please give it a go. Monitor any CW QSO and see if you can hear any phases from the classes; don’t write anything down, just listen and head copy.

Until next week

The CWOPS CWT activity periods are very well attended now, even on the early morning ones, three of us at least turn up.
40m was alive and kicking this week. CW nsignals from the USA were 599 mostly and it was the bread and butter band. Only 3 stations on 80m with no response at all to several CQs on 160m.

With lockdown, it is a super time to learn CW, but it does need the Big P word!!
It will soon be time for the CW OPS Open, held on the first Saturday in September. This is a serious contest, with three four-hour periods. It is great fun however, and four hours is not too long, especially in Lockdown!! Take a look on the CW OPS web site.

"My Favourite Keys"

I would appreciate pictures of your key or keys together with a head shot so I can compile them for a page on the CLub's web site. Emails to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
I am featuring them here first, so please send them along, together with a mug shot. I AM RUNNING SHORT!!!

This week it is Malcolm, G3PDH who features. Malcolm owns a CHevron too, one of the Rolls Royce of paddles. The paddle attached to Malcolm's KX3 is the Palm paddle. Coupled with the KX3 it makes a very nice /P combo. His straight key is a Vibroplex, but Malcolm is thinking of buying a Begali straight key. I don't think he uses the semi-automatic bug!! There are still "bug" days, run by FOC but not too many people have this type of key these days. You can always tell when a bug is being used!

I could use some more pictures to feature here please. It does not matter if you are not overly active, but just shows what key(s) you use. Don't forget the mug shot too!

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

===============================================================

CW Academy is another source of instruction. It's on line and is run by the CW OPS Club. Details can be found here:
https://cwops.org/cw-academy/
.
Headcopy Class is also going well.
.
There may be a few times when Headcopy Class has a break for the summer, as other work calls at G3LDI. However, if someone else wants to run it please let me know.
.
So, join us at 1000 on Monday mornings and have some fun. GOTA is the accronym to apply here, Get On The Air and make more Qs.
