Morse Classes HAVE started.



Input from Jim G3YLA:

25wpm CW report for Tuesday 20th Oct 2020


We had a small but perfectly formed team of two for this week’s session on GB3NB at 8pm on Tuesday evening. David, M0WEL and Alex, 2E0FHF put in a very good showing and are progressing well with head copy of QSOs and extracting nuggets of information. This is a good technique to learn since it reduces stress of having to write it all down. It is showing good progress, so well done chaps and hope a few more can join in now the long dark evenings are upon us.

I also had the pleasure standing in for Chris, G4CCX on 145.250 on Tuesday morning at 10am and had a good turnout of his regulars, Phil G4LPP, John G4PFZ, Robert G4TUK, Alex 2E0FHF and Tony G0OOR. This crew has been busy sharpening up the skillset a lot since I last met up in a class with them.

There is now a large group within NARC of active CW ops learning to improve techniques and skills. This shows up well on the bands and in the contests in which NARC is beacon for clubs in the UK in terms of commitment to CW. These NARC members have been able to add a wonderful operating mode into their log books and have experienced the satisfaction gained from fluency on the key. You too can discover this by joining one of the many sessions run by NARC members during the week. Other great interests are available, but if you’ve not tried this one before, perhaps now might be a good time.

Phil G4LPP has a beginners session on Friday evening at 8pm on 145.250 and now, in its early stages, is a good time to join. I shall be starting another 25wpm beginners class in January on the repeater on Tuesdays at 8pm, so plenty of opportunity to hit the ground running. This is an open invitation for those wanting to try for the first time or perhaps have a second go after previous sessions.

Morse with Doctor Phil: Fridays on 145.250MHz @ 20.00

Phil's class got off to a good start with two students last week. This week there were three and this coming Friday there should be four! So, really good to see some are learning the code and gaining a new mode to use on the air.

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!
Practice Pays!
Philip has been practising with RUFZXP, the call sign practice program and to show that Practice Pays, this is what Phil has achieved with that program.

The bottom line says it all!!!! Congratulations Phil.

The CWOPS CWT activity periods are proving a real attraction. John G4PFZ is now hooked on them - well perhaps not the 0300z period - but we usually have around 6 of us taking part now.
Email me with input, queries, keys, paddles, classes and so on. Hopefully I can help or know a man that can!
