W5RRR CW Practice
October 24, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00pm on Tuesday and Thursday, repeating until December 14, 2017
Weekly W5RRR code practice transmissions on our repeater, 146.640.
12:00-12:15 CT will be sent at 5 WPM and 12:15-12:30 CT will be sent at ~15-18 WPM.
The 5 WPM will be sent using the Farnsworth method which sends the characters at ~18 WPM but uses longer than usual spaces. This method is designed to force learners to mentally recognize patterns vs using memorized thinking.
Transmissions can be received using a conventional FM ham radio.
If anyone is aware of potential conflicts with other noon time users, please let Dave Lee (W5OC) know.
QSO skeds on CW (any band) to build up proficiency is available upon request.
