Motto!
Never ever send faster than the station at the other end!

SOCWA is a project aimed to consolidate Morse code skills among amateur radio operators and to increase CW activity on the ham radio bands.

Encourage other ham radio operators to go CW in their own speed. Help them to increase their CW skills and experiences. Send at a moderate speed that does not discourage others from participating.

Scandinavian Open CW Activity - CQ SAX


             Random picture from the Blog

The Oland Amateur Radio Society, SK7RN and the Scandinavian CW Activity Group (SCAG) are pleased to announce a stimulating CW activity (on all the HF Bands) for Scandinavian amateur radio operators for Calendar year 2013.

SOCWA involves CW (Continuous Wave) contact by and between amateur radio operators in the Scandinavian countries of Denmark, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. (Prefixes OY, JW, JX, OH0 and OJ0 also count as Scandinavian countries.)

A Scandinavian amateur radio operator is:
1) an individual who holds a valid permit or license issued by one of the above listed countries, or
2) an individual whose original license was issued by any one of the aforementioned countries.

Radio amateurs from other countries outside of Scandinavia who register are welcome to participate in the SOCWA, but in order to qualify for a Completion Certificate; each qualified two-way CW contact must include an amateur operator from one of the listed Scandinavian countries.

The SOCWA program will be in effect for Calendar Year 2015 (01-Jan-2015 through 31-Dec-2015) in order to maximize the total amount of qualified two-way QSOs.

Recommended frequencies (khz): 1835-1840, 3535-3540, 7035-7040, 10125-10130, 14035-14040, 18085-18090, 21035-21040, 24905-24910, 28035-28040
