Autumn Morse Classes
.
We are still looking for beginners. Don't just rest with a phone only licence. CW is the best way to work DX.
Starting young is the answer!! Take a look at this:

The autumn series of Morse Classes started on Tuesday 17th Ocotber, as follows:
.
Tuesdays:
1900 - 2000 Raw Beginners with Roger G3LDI on 145.250MHz
2000 - 2100 Intermediates with Jim G3YLA on 145.250MHz
Thursdays:
1000 - 1100 Coffee Break Morse with Chris G4CCX on GB3NB
2000 - 2100 Advanced Class with Malcolm G3PDH on 145.250MHz
.
Again this week, there were NO raw beginners, so to those that have just become licensed, please consider joining the Morse classes. It's painless and fun. Yes, you do have some studying and practice to do, but nothing worth doing is without effort! If you want a book on Morse, then try Morse Code for Radio Amateurs from the RSGB. That gives you all the information you will need. Email me for information: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Straight Key Nite.
.
This is proving to be very popular, and we have people joining from down south, Suffolk in other words! Monday evening we had G4PNF, G3XLG ( NOT on a straight key though! tut tut! ) G3XVL, G4CCX, G0DFC, G0IBN, G3WRJ and me. A large net indeed, would have been even larger if Malcolm G3PDH was not at a council meeting and Jim G3YLA was not giving a talk! Great fun, and worth preserving the skill. Do join if you can.
