CW Fun Events were created a little over a year ago by K2RFP of the Straight Key Century Club. Think of the concept as a non-contest contest. What distinguishes the events from contests is that participants pre-register and how the exchange varies from contact to contact. CW Fun Event-6 will begin at 0000UTC Saturday March 23 and continue until 2359UTC Sunday March 24.
Here's how it works. Pre-register by surfing to cwevent.org. Leave your call sign, name and email address. You will receive via email a list of 210 5-letter groups to printout. And those codewords are what will make each contact unique.
On the air, you will call or answer CQ FE.
Exchange true RST S/P/C NAME and 5-letter code group (Code Word). Start at the top of the list and scratch them off as you use them. The first contact gets codeword 1, etc.
All contacts must be made using straight key, bug or cootie. Keyers, keyboards, and code readers are not permitted. Having fun is mandatory. And if you have considered jumping into a CW contest but have been held back by lack of confidence, let this event be your training session. There's even a website where you may solicit contacts during the event
