May = Morse

April 30, 2017 By: G7DDN Category: Club, Contest, Fun, News, Training

It’s that time of year again! Wythall Radio Club has an annual initiative during the month of May to appreciate Morse Code (CW), in memory of past club president and long-time CW teacher, Lew Williams.

Kev G4XLO won the shield in 2016

During the month we encourage all in the club to either a) have a first go at learning the code or b) improve on your rusty skills. :)

 
At the end of May we collect reports and anecdotes for how members have used, or learned the mode during the month. Sometimes people nominate themselves, other send reports in about other members’ achievements.
 
At the end of the month we have a presentation and summary of the reports received, and award the Lew Williams Shield to the club member who it’s felt has shown the most progression. 
 
It’s often easier for new learners to do well in this event, so why not have a go at learning and using Morse Code?
