The Long Island CW Club (LICW) has come a long way since my first post about the club in January 2018.
I recently visited their Web site and found that the Club now has about 800 members in all 50 states and 18 countries!
As one of the original lifetime members, it’s great to see that their idea of bringing tradition to Amateur Radio has really caught on!
Among the 48 classes on their schedule, LICW now offers classes for kids and ladies. What a perfect idea to bring people together into one of the best aspects of the Amateur Radio hobby and service.
Unlike FM and SSB modes, Morse code or CW (continuous wave) only needs a narrow bandwidth to operate. Less bandwidth means space for more operators. CW transmissions can be received when band conditions are poor. Morse code was, is and always will be the original form of digital transmissions.

Just a quick note. I posted an article on my other blog about the new PX3 Panadapter for the KX3. You can seen the quick notes and a link to the Elecraft PX3 Companion Datasheet here.
