Why Learn CW?
We believe that although you don't have to KNOW CODE to pass a test, you may find great enjoyment in learning and using code. Large portions of the amateur radio spectrum are restricted to CW (and digital). Without CW skill, many contacts and a lot of fun are missed. We are proud that many “new” hams have learned CW and are now on the CW portion of the bands having FUN!

In 2009 and 2010, the CW SIG sponsored a CW class. And in 2011, they are doing it again. W4QO is your leader and the class starts on January 20. The class is aimed at helping you learn CW to 5 wpm. Members of the class -- and others interested in CW -- practice CW Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights at 8PM on the club's 145.47 repeater from late January through May.
Our CW speaking members are all looking to work you on the air so invite them to schedule you the next chance you get.
