Who: The Amateur Radio Caravan Club (ARRC) and Jim Holston W9FFR
What: The ARCC is presenting a basic, introductory course on receiving and
sending CW via Morse Code. The instructor will be Jim Holston W9FFR
who at one time used to send CW for the ARRL.
When: 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM on Sunday the 10th, the 17th, and the 24th of February
Where: Faith Lutheran Church
10000 Spain NE (between Eubank and Juan Tabo)
Why: CW is fun by itself, but CW operators enjoy more of the spectrum for
even greater Ham fun.
o This first class will be limited to 20 students, so register early by
sending an email to abqARCC
o Family members welcome!
o There is no tuition for the course.
o Students are asked to bring a practice key and a code practice oscillator
(CPO) or a combination rig if possible (not necessary for 1st class)
A rig with volume control and a headset would be very helpful
The MFJ‐557 complete rig is available at Universal Radio for ~40$
Many CPO kits and practice keys are available on the WWW from 7‐35$
Ask around to borrow a rig or check the upcoming tailgate for a deal.
