Morse Classes for winter 2020 are going well.

Report from G3LDI on the Monday QSO format session.
.
Monday mornings is now a QSO format on 80m and with talkback from G3LDI on 2 metres. This enables me to do two things:
1 Hear where you are going wrong and
2 Letting you know immediately on two metres so that you can correct it there and then, and send the corrected version until you have it right. Doing it like this gets it done rightaway instead of waiting until we finish the QSO. It's a bit like being at a music lesson!

Report from G3YLA of the Tuesday evening 25wpm session of GB2CW on repeater GB3NB Tuesday 24th Nov 2020

 telegraphiste

It was another useful session on the repeater GB3NB on Tuesday at 8pm with good company from Tony G0OOR, David M0WEL, Alex 2E0FHF and Paul M1AFQ.

We covered some seasonal QSOs taken off air which were very conversational in style and included lots of interesting detail about heavy snowfall in parts of the Mid-West. Well worth learning how to cope with non-standard content and not be too worried by missing the odd word or two.

The art of head copy is usually easier at the faster speeds, say around 25wpm, and this means that you can hear and process the whole word rather than one letter at a time. It is a long game moving away from writing at all down verbatim, but well worth the effort.

Keep up the good work…

Hello from Sutton where we have, at the time of writing, completed 7 weeks of the new beginners CW class.

Regular attendees have been Nick M0NVT, Martin 2E0MSY, David G0ELJ, John G8VPE and more recently joining us we have had David 2E0DBS. Others have been listening!
.
Apart from David G0ELJ who did his 12WPM certificate many years ago and has never used it in anger all are fairly raw beginners. All are making steady progress and have gone from barely knowing any letters or numbers in some cases to reading short words, abbreviations and callsigns so excellent work so-far. CW is being sent at a character speed of 14wpm and a word speed of 5 wpm, the aim being that as people progress to gradually close up the gaps to a true 14wpm and then onwards from there! Very pleasing to see the excellent progress all are making and glad to see the enthusiasm they all show. Keep it up lads!
.
It’s not too late to join the class although may require a little extra practice to catch up!
.
The class is on Friday evening at 8pm on 145.250MHz FM immediately followed by the NARC contest net on the same frequency at 9pm

By the way, Phil is a GOOD cop, so you will be treated kindly!

The CWOPS CWT activity periods are still as popular as ever.
There will be several medallions heading this way in the spring, of varying colour, severl gold, silver and at least one bronze.
If you aspire to join CW OPS, prove your worth with a few >20wpm QSOs, chatty ones, and you can get in! It is a lot of fun operating in the CWTs, and terrific practice too.

The link below is to FAV22. THis is a military station on 3881.00kHz and runs at varying speeds with groups of letters, numbers, punctuation and procedural signals. It is on 24/7 so take a look It is well worth the practice.

This is from Tomorrow's World, a popular TV programme (a long time ago however!). I wonder how many would use such a system now?
