Thanks Brian VE7JKZ – great presentation

21 Feb

Many thanks to Brian Summers VE7JKZ for his presentation titled “Erecting a tower/antenna in Saanich” at the February 20th WARA member meeting. Very informative.

There was a great turnout of 26 members and guests who enjoyed coffee, cookies, and conversation prior to and after the presentation. Three members took away Pelican cases.

Next meeting March 20, 2018 – Operating on 630-metres. Why? and How? Roger Graves VE7VV – Please join us!

Learning Morse code

2 Dec

Want to learn Morse code?

WARA has code files on this site. Click on the Education link at the top of the page and you’ll find the files at the bottom of the drop-down window. Download them to your phone or a digital recorder, then play them back. Easy to learn. Just be persistent.

Once you’ve mastered the letters and the numbers, check out these online sites for three Morse code programs. I’ve used the first two but not the third (although I understand it’s good, too.)

The nice thing about all three of these programs is the number of YouTube ‘help’ videos to help you configure and run them. Enjoy.
