CW Practice Buddies

Information on this page is provided by Brion VE3FUJ. Contact Brion at pix_email_ve3fuj (1K) with any questions or comments.

We are trying to set up a list of Code Buddies and request participation.

So far we have these volunteers followed by an explanation of the buddy system.

Code buddies are expected to have a reasonably nice fist and a willingness to devote some time to help others develop a nice fist as well as proficiency in sending and receiving. High speed is not essential, accuracy is of higher importance. We need to know at what speeds you like to operate, and the means for someone to get in touch with you to arrange a sked, your e-mail address, call, qth, a word or two about yourself and name you go by . That info could go direct to pix_email_ve3fuj (1K) where it will be set up for uniformity and then posted to code Buddies. Any time you wish you can be deleted from the list, it's by no means permanent.

Example:

I can be contacted at pix_email_ve3fuj (1K) for a sked.
