Morse Channel Resources
OARC has a Morse channel on the Discord server that aims to help members learn Morse Code so they can operate CW on amateur radio. This page catalogues some of the resources we are using, anyone is welcome to add more or expand this page, it is a wiki after all.
Morse Code Training
Slow to Medium Speed CW Net
Michael GM5AUG and Colin GM4JPZ are beginning a weekly Slow to Medium Speed CW Net for 40m, which anyone with an interest in Morse or learning CW is welcome to call in to. More information can be found here.
There are several OARC members who are proficient in CW and happy to arrange skeds or video calls with those learning Morse Code. Simply post a request on the #morse channel, or contact:
- Michael GM5AUG
- Colin GM4JPZ
Any OARC members who would like to offer their services, please let Michael know.
- Essex CW (UK) - Essex CW Amateur Radio Club is for anyone with a passion for Morse Code.
- CW Academy - The CW Academy offers classes for all levels of Morse code, with each course lasting 2 months. Student resources are available for all on their area of the CWOps website.
Most online training systems suggest practising for 30-60 minutes per day, and the OARC Discord Morse channel is a useful place to talk about learning, Morse keys, paddles, keyers, speed, CW philosophy and pretty much anything that will get people on the air.
