Morse Classes HAVE started.

Morse sweat

.
Local Morse classes that stopped over the summer have again started.
Chris G4CCX carried on stalwartly all through the summer. Hopefully you will all support the classes again this winter. Some advanced students really should be making QSOs on the air now on a regular basis and I know that this is happening but it should be occuring on a regular daily basis. My head copy class is now a QSO in the form of a ragchew on 80m and Phil G4LPP is a regular on that one. A few more would be welcome too!

Jim had three in his class this week, John G4PFZ, David M0WEL and 2E0FHF. Looks like those from last year have not joined yet or decided not to take part.Time will tell!

25wpm CW report for Tuesday 13th Oct 2020

Another fine piece of revision for the 25wpm CW group on the GB3NB repeater at 8pm on Tuesday evening.

We covered abbreviations and sample QSO texts, all sent at 25wpm, and gradually getting the team familiar with listening and reading as a head copy. The more time you can spend either having QSOs or just receiving and not writing it down, but getting used to the idea of picking out the odd word here and there, the better CW will be for you.

It suddenly happens that Morse is something you can monitor in the background and still capture the sense of the conversation. Anyone is welcome to join this group and don’t forget you can find practice files on the NARC website …

… this includes MP3 files and text files, so there is no excuse for not having opportunity to practice between our weekly sessions on the repeater.

We don't have a beginner's class now merely because we have NO new beginners. However there is some good news!

Phil's class got off to a good start with two students. Hopefully next week there will be more!

If you are interested, please email Phil and let him know. He will contact you and give you more details.

By the way, Phil is a GOOD cop, so you will be treated kindly!
.
Steve 2E0SZD is scratching around for reasons NOT to join! He has not found one as yet..........
.
The CWOPS CWT activity periods are becoming even more popular. The 1300 session this week produced no less than 8 of us taking part so Norfolk ARC is being well represented! Several are already in line for medals and the year still has more than two months to go!

Email me with input, queries, keys, paddles, classes and so on. Hopefully I can help or know a man that can!
