Jim's HIgh Speed CLass

telegraphiste

Jim's classes have now completed, but he will continue with revision if any of you are interested. This is what Jim says:

 

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.

Having come this far, hopefully you will want to continue. If so, please email Jim to let him know. This is not a good time to stop as you have already done a lot of the basics and it would be a shame to let it slip now.

"My Favourite Keys"

This week features a really old straight key, from Chris G3XVL.It is a Danish Marine key called an Amplidan. The other picture shows his shack with a selection of keys. Chris is an excellent operator and also takes a GB2CW class.

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. I am also hoping to make a feature on the Club web site of both a head shot of you and your keys, so please keep sending them.

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 conversation. 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. GOTA is the accronym to apply here, Get On The Air and make more Qs.
