Morse Training
            
Practise sessions.
These will be held on Thursday evenings following the 2m club net that commences at 8pm on 145.400MHz. Club members wanting to do some on-air practice should announce this during the net, at the end of which those wanting to send Morse will need to switch to (F2A) modulation, using an audio oscillator and to transmit the tone via an open mike using FM.
