CW is sometimes known as the “original digital mode”, and has been around for almost 200 years. Although there is no longer a licensing requirement for code proficiency, many hams continue to use and enjoy this mode of communication.
In the club, we have a number of members who are very proficient and interested in the code. Our Sunday morning net on 80 meters uses CW; we use CW extensively at Field Day; and a number of members are active CW operators.
If you would like to learn more about CW, or about CW activity in the club, please contact Pierre Mainville VA3PM.
Give it a try! It’s fun!
