QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo
Since the last Expo, I have had the opportunity to attend the CWops, CW Academy Basic Class, to improve my CW skills. Honestly, I haven’t been on The CW since 1974. I’m a little rusty, but like riding a bike, you don’t forget the code.
My instructor was Roland Smith, K7OJL, my guest in episode 349 of QSO Today. Roland was a wonderful and patient instructor, and my classmates were in England, Ireland and Portugal. A great group of guys.
CW Academy is very well organized, the material very well put together, as well as numerous audio files and online teaching “machines”. Homework is demanding and takes a long time. My CW speed is now around 10 wpm. Hope you find me on the air.
I have sent out invitations to 29,000 hams on my mailing list as a call for speaker presentations for the upcoming QSO Today Virtual Ham Exhibition on August 14th and 15th. I already have 41 excellent presentations pending. If you would like to make a presentation, please follow the buttons on the Expo website.
QSO Today Expo’s YouTube channel was taken down without explanation last week. I am working to restore it. In the meantime, all the videos are on the Expo Vimeo channel. Links to them can be found on the Expo website.
Finally, my family and I survived the recent missile attack. We continue.
Have a nice week, 73,
