I'm a general, fairly new to the hobby and would like to try code. Does anyone know of a slow code net where I could get my feet wet?  Thanks..Tom

i participate in the texas slow net. it is a cw
traffic handling training net, so you can kill two
birds with one stone; increase your cw proficiency
*and* learn cw traffic handling at the same time.
now, how's that for a deal?

it meets each evening at 8 pm central
standard or daylight savings time. the
frequency is 3719 khz.

don't worry if you're not from texas; the most
frequent net control is in oklahoma city, and we've
recently had a fella frequently checking in from
montana.

Hi Tom,

Just call CQ at the speed you feel comfortable with and someone will answer (usually at your speed).  If not just tell them to QRS (send slower).

Don't be shy, plenty of us out there have just as much fun at 5 WPM as 50 WPM.

See you an the air!
