How about some Slow Speed CW Nets that you can work? 12 - April - 2010Posted by k9zw in Amateur Radio.
There is such a thing as a “Slow Speed” CW Net, where the pace is kept down enough for mere mortals to step to the affray!
Fists publishes a list: http://www.fists.org/slownet.pdf
There are a couple really good eBooks available to download (free!) on CW
The Art & Skill of Radio Telegraphy – A Manual For Learning, Using, Mastering And Enjoying The International Morse Code As A Means Of Communication by William G. Pierpont N0HFF
And Carlo IK0YGJ’s eBook “Zen and the Art of Radiotelegraphy”
I’ll make no bones about how I am rebuilding CW skills from just above zero CW ability. Though I passed the Novice CW exam a bit over 20 years ago, I think I managed to log only two CW QSOs.
I’m using Learn CW Online at http://lcwo.net/ and a version of Carlo IK0YGJ’s book tailored to the CW training device I am using.
Perhaps soon I will “re-graduate” to logging CW QSOs on the air! Hope to see you there!
