Many hams around the world have formed groups to encourage and promote learning and using Morse code on the air. Now, according to Newsline, those groups have formed a group for greater cooperation and collaboration. The International CW Council started this past January at a meeting organized by Howard Bernstein, WB2UZE, of the Long Island CW Club.
Nearly two dozen groups have already affiliated themselves with the new umbrella organization, including CW Ops, FISTS, SKCC, NAQCC, K1USN and the A1 Club of Japan. More information on the council is available at its website, <www.internationalcwcouncil.org>.
