I was originally signed up for the January course, but got notification this week from the program that I had been moved up to September! I’m nervous but excited at the same time. My focus will shift towards CW over the coming months (and hopefully continue!) as I take on the task of learning Morse Code. Apologize in advance if this pulls me away from the blog or the YouTube channel – but I know in the end, this will open up so many more opportunities for me to have QSOs with a distinguished bunch of folks!

The class only meets twice a week, but I know that it will likely require a bit of daily practice. I always had issues trying to learn a foreign language in school – but this is only 26 letters & 10 numbers I keep telling myself! I have two project videos that I’m working on right now, and once those are finished, I plan on immersing myself in CW.

It didn’t take me long to realize that CW is king with the kind of operating I’m most interested in (outdoors & portable). This will allow me to reduce my pack size immensely. Less weight means more awesome adventures!
