The Case for CW by K8SIW

Next Meeting - August 14, 2018

The Brightleaf Amateur Radio Club will have its regular meeting at 7:30 PM Tuesday, August 14, at VFW Post 7032 on 1108 Mumford Road in Greenville.  The BARC Constitution will be discussed for possible changes to clear up some of the wording.   Gary Faust, N4PIR, will make the presentation about CW and the CW Ops Academy.   For those that are interested in learning or improving their CW, this is the way to go.  They "are teaching many newcomers and veteran hams the art of CW using a novel training environment that allows an instructor to work with hams located thousands of miles apart. ..... There is no cost or obligation to participate in CWops CW Academy Classes and membership is not required. Enrollment is open to anyone with the desire to learn or improve their proficiency in Morse Code."  For more information, go to https://cwops.org/.

All members. families and guests are invited to attend.
