A new decade, a new morse club? CWOPS
In the course of some e-mails last night with I learned that a new International CW Club had been formed, by Jim, N3JT. In part (and these are my words) this has probably come about out of some dissatisfaction with the First Class CW Operator's Club (FOC) [incidentally, I resigned from that club, yesterday].
The club is clearly new, but in its aims, it appears to address a number of the shortcomings that FOC has either had, or been perceived to have had.
If you're interested in Morse, then perhaps you may care to take part in some of the activity periods. I know many of the members of the new club and am sure that you will receive a warm welcome.
Have a read about CWOPS here (beware, it's got background sound on the home page!)
Me? I don't think I'll be rushing to join any morse clubs. I think I'll just try to use morse on the bands where it's appropriate and to encourage others to do the same.
