    Morse Code / CW Classes – Coming Soon!

    The Charlottetown Amateur Radio Club is looking to host Morse code classes in a group learning format. This is meant to compliment your Amateur Radio license or simply to allow you to learn something new. No specific certification is provided at the end however after the course the club may do a weekly or monthly HF net using Morse code for the purpose of keeping up skills and knowledge.
    The format and date is yet to be determined but will depend on interest. Sign up below to get on the list to be notified when we will be running the course and a preference as to class times.
