For those who would like to work on Morse Code (aka CW) with a group of friends, we invite you to the code practice net Sundays at 4:30 pm on 146.550 simplex. This will be a combination voice/code net using regular FM phone mode. You're welcome to listen, ask questions, or send and receive code with us. If you want to send code, you'll need a key and some type of code practice oscillator. This could be the side-tone on another transceiver, a computer or smart-phone app, or a regular code oscillator or sounder. All you need to do is hold your mic/handheld near the source of the code sound and send your code while you transmit. Whether you've never learned code, or want to improve your code skills, please join us. Listen for "CQ CQ CPN" in code, and a voice announcement of the net as well, and check in when invited to do so. We look forward to hearing from you! For more information, contact Kevin, N7GES, 970-481-3264.

The club holds a net each Wednesday at 6:30 pm on the 447.275 repeater (100 Hz tone).  This net starts as a formal net with check-ins and an opportunity to ask questions of the board and members.  Then switches to an informal net where participants can chat about anything on their mind.
