    With many youngsters at loose ends as a result of school closings due to COVAD-19 concerns, the Long Island CW Club is offering students free on-line instruction to learn Morse code.

    Howard Bernstein, WB2UZE, a founding member of the Long Island CW Club explained that learning Morse is a fun and educational activity for children of all ages that can fill part of the gap left by the current unfortunate situation that has closed so many schools across the country.

    Therefore the Long Island CW Club will be offering on-line Morse code classes each Monday through Friday starting on Monday, March 23rd specifically for school-agers anywhere across the country or overseas.

    Instruction will be conducted via Zoom on-line video conferencing, requiring a computer equipped with a microphone and camera.

    Classes for elementary school-aged children will run 30-minutes starting at 12:00 noon EDT (16:00Z) , followed by 45-minute classes for middle and high-school-aged youngsters starting at 12:45 p.m. EDT (16:45Z)

    There is no charge for participation, but parental permission is required through advance registration by contacting the class instructor, Robb Zarges, K2MZ, by e-mail at or telephone at 508-8318248.

    The Long Island CW Club ( is dedicated to the history and preservation of Morse code communications. Its team of 15 instructors offers 25 on-line video conference classes each week at different skill levels, currently serving more than 300 students in 44 states and ten countries.

    Kids are not the only ones locked up - parents are too...
