    South African Mega CW QRS week starting Sunday 14th of November

    The South African Mega CW QRS week runs from 04:00 UTC on Sunday 14 November to 16:00 UTC on
    Saturday 20th November is exclusively geared towards the new guys coming up in the ranks and will
    be comfortable, with a minimum requirement of 8 wpm and not exceeding 12 wpm.

    The idea is to make as many contacts as you can within a 7 day calendar period, the goal is to log all
    contacts on the RaDAR Sport Log, proudly developed by Eddie, ZS6BNE
    You will need a login PIN, which Eddie will gladly send you, in order to take part. CW must be sent
    using any paddle or any straight key, nothing more than 12 wpm character speed or slower, to qualify
    to participate. You will need to declare in the comments column on the logging system what kind of
    key you used. The Radar system self-generates the points. Encourage your friends to make use of the
    online logging system. Bands permissible during the activity are 40, 20 and 80 m. You may not work
    the same call sign more than ONCE on each band. Each day you start afresh, you can re-work the same
    amateurs you did the previous day. The exchange will be the standard CW formal exchange, so long
    as it is a real contact, your contact may also move into a full-blown QSO if you like.


    New Awards

    The introduction of a number of new on the air awards are planned over the coming weeks by the
    National Radio Society of Ireland. These will no doubt increase activity on the bands going forward in
    the country. Further information will follow regarding these new awards and will be made available
    via the website


    Munster Radio Club

    Munster Radio Club will be hosting a virtual social gathering on Sunday 14th November. All radio
