RSGB Morse Practice - GB2CW

 
Practice Morse code is broadcast on behalf of the RSGB by Morse practice volunteers in many parts of the UK using the callsign GB2CW.  
The aims are twofold: first, to assist those preparing for the amateur radio Morse tests and second, to provide practice Morse at speeds which will help qualified operators to improve their standards. 
Receiving practice alone is not enough and many volunteers use their own callsigns after the transmissions to provide sending practice. 
New volunteers are urgently required on HF and VHF to extend cover over the whole of the UK. 
For more information on the RSGB Morse Practice Service, please contact the co-ordinator: George Allan GM4HYF, 22 Tynwald Avenue, High Burnside, Rutherglen, GLASGOW, G73 4RN by post, or on packet: GM4HYF@GB7SAN, or email: george@allan99.freeserve.co.uk
