    The following link will provide a good explanation of what you should expect to encounter in a “typical” CW QSO.

    Please be aware that your experiences may vary a little bit from the video.  Note the use of “abbreviations” and PROSIGNS thru-out the QSO… some of them might be unfamiliar to some first time CW operators.

    Note: The BT prosign is illustrated in the video, and I would encourage you to use it to help you organize your thoughts into more meaningful segments.

    Enjoy   🙂

    Here is a link to a program that we have been using in the CWOps CW Academy. After learning all the letters and numbers they have us practice common words that are heard in most QSOs (QTH, Name, RST, Rig, Ant, WX, etc.) Lately, we have been using this program, http://361euros.com/K1TNT/CW/# which can simulate a QSO. It has three parts of a QSO with common terms that would be heard in each section.

    I’ve really enjoyed it and it’s really helped me along.
