Many of you guys thought morse code is dead ! think again ! the code is still going strong   Grin ever since i took code right before they drop the code and pass it that was back 06 or 07 can't remember before general, but anyhow about 4 or 5 years later i had to relearn the code again !


This will take me time to get back in it slowly like 30 min each day then back at it again!i keep hearing slow code going thats good keep it going !! the code are fun as ya know by now,that is my favorite mode of cw.

going to take a little time to learn again,i use headphone when i use cw and  also keep radio down when someone is sleeping while i keep headphone on !

1.how many people doing slow code?
2. are you guys are willing to slow down the code for them  and for me too?
3. is anyone is skcc ? mine is #7305
4.Are you willing to learn the code ?

newbies are welcome new to cw ask any question !  Cheesy

yall know morse code is fun gave that a try !  Grin

The only people who "think the code is dead" are those that don't want to learn it for one reason or another.

Or who don't like the fact that someone else can do what they cannot.

See if we can break a >50 year old record.

1677 CW Sweepstakes logs submitted in 1958. Unequaled to this day.

Two big caveats about that record:

1) In those days SS was two entire weekends for each mode. This helped participation.

2) 1958 was at or near the peak of the best sunspot cycle on record.

4. Contest Exchange: The required exchange consists of:

4.1. A consecutive serial number;

4.2. Precedence;

4.2.1. “Q” for Single Op QRP (5 Watts output or less);

4.2.2. “A” for Single Op Low Power (up to 150 W output);

4.2.3. “B” for Single Op High Power (greater than 150 W output);

4.2.4. “U” for Single Op Unlimited Single-Op Unlimited High Power and Single-Op Unlimited Low Power both send "U")

4.2.5. “M” for Multi-Op (Multiop High Power and Multiop Low Power both send "M")

4.2.6. “S” for School Club;

4.3 Your Callsign;

4.4. Check

4.4.1. The last 2 digits of the year of first license for either the operator or the station.

4.4.2. An entry must send the same Check throughout the entire contest.

4.5. ARRL/RAC Section (click here for the official list)

4.6 Exchange Example: NU1AW would respond to W1AW’s call by sending: W1AW 123 B NU1AW 71 CT, which indicates QSO number 123, B for Single Op High Power, NU1AW, first licensed in 1971, and in the Connecticut section.)


Good grief, what an exchange. When is the next major CW DX test?

Sheesh! Thanks Geoff; think I'll go hide on 75m and pick some brains after the Packer game.
My mistake, I was thinking WES.

Jim --

I got my first Novice license that year (KN7DWN), while a Freshman in HS. I still remember those days -- as a newbie, I thought that was the norm! Those were heady times...
