January 12, 2009


Yesterday was the CW leg of the AFS 80m team Contest. Having never entered this particular section of the contest before, several of us are getting a bit more proficient on the key and it is a fairly relaxed and relatively short contest to start to feel your way around this particular mode. Conditions were good and G0VGS managed around 70 contacts, despite only spending about an hour actually active. CW will play a bigger part for us in 2009 and even members who have never had to pass a morse exam are now getting interested in the mode. Those of us that have learnt morse are going to be working hard to improve our individual skills (well thats the plan anyway)
