Subject: [CMRA] Intro to CW class - please reply if interested

I'm planning an Intro to CW class the last two weeks in Feb.  Strictly an intro, learn the characters, numbers, and punctuation and other conversational responses like BT, SK, 73, TU and AR.  We'll also do some practice sending with keys.

It will be held at Lenoir Woods Senior Living Community in Columbia, MO., thanks to Mac K4CHS  Times would be 3 times per week -- 2 in the evening and once on Saturday morning for each week.   You're done in two weeks!   Training will be based on the Koch method, endorsed by the ARRL and is the most common learning path used by hams all over.  

Please reply if you would like to attend, so I can get a preliminary count for planning purposes.  Everyone is welcome of course.  Bring your kids if you want to sit in.

John, I'm interested but won't have time to do this until sometime in August, and I'd likely have to miss the Saturday class.

Group,

I wonder if anyone else would like to practice getting your Winlink capabilities to work from your shack, as opposed to what I tried to get done from your mobile devices at the last SET?

I am thinking of one night we would all get on an appropriate 2M  frequency and play an e-mail chain-letter game. We would be using the Peer-to-Peer feature of Winlink Express. I would send email to A P2P. The email would have instructions as to what to add to the message. A sends that message to B, B sends to C, etc..

 

The last station in the ring would send the email back to me and we would discuss how the process worked out for each of us. I think I remember that there were about 10 participants in the SET that were going to try Winlink, but only 5 were successful. 

 

More practice could help improve our capabilities, and from the comfort of our home, we might have a good time. 

 

What I am asking in this email is how many players do we have? Just email me with in the next week if your are interested. If you need help setting up your station to do Winlink, let us know and some help could be on the way.

Re: High HF bands are active

Bryan Nehl
 

Yes, Wednesday I was out operating portable SOTA chasing.  I was using a K2 at 10 watts to an EFHW antenna.  KR7RK was on a summit in Arizona we made contacts on 10m and 12m CW.  Had no trouble copying him through 17m as well.
