QRS CW Net
The 4X4 Ham QRS CW Net is back by popular demand! Several members have contacted me and inquired about a slow-speed CW net to practice their code skills. As such, the QRS CW Net is back!
I will be your net control. The net script is available in Downloads section of this website under the section "4x4 Ham Files." We've decided to change up the format of the net for this year. Instead of a monthly net, we're going to shorten the duration of each net, but increase the frequency to weekly in an effort to improve participation.
This is an excellent opportunity for those new to CW, or rusty from lack of use, to get back on the air in an environment which is casual and low-pressure. Net code will be sent using the Farnsworth method. Elements will be sent at 15-20wpm speed; however, spacing will be exaggerated to slow the overall rate down to 5-7wpm. QRS requests are gladly honored and appreciated.
If you've been meaning to learn CW, now is your chance, and a great excuse to get on the air. You don't have to be fast, or good...just come on out for the net...you'll have a great time!
**PLEASE NOTE: The net start time has been returned to its normal summer operating frequency on 40m. The net will begin at 0200Z (7:00pm Arizona Standard Time) on Saturday nights - on/around 7.115 MHz.
