    W1AW’s transmitting schedule occurs at the same local Eastern time throughout the year.

    The schedule may change if your local time does not have seasonal adjustments.

    Daily Morse Code Practice QST Source

    Code practice text is from the pages of QST magazine, the League’s membership journal.  The source is given at the beginning of each practice session and alternate speeds within each session.  For example, “Text is from July 2015 QST, pages 86″ indicates that the practice session’s plain text is from the article on page 86.

    Morse Code Transmissions

    Frequencies are 1.8025, 3.5815, 7.0475, 14.0475, 18.0975, 21.0675, 28.0675 and 147.555 MHz.

    Slow Code = practice sent at 5, 7-1/2, 10, 13 and 15 words per minute (wpm).

    Fast Code = practice sent at 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 13 and 10 wpm.

    Code bulletins are sent at 18 wpm.

    CW frequencies include code practices, Qualifying Runs and CW bulletins.

    World Wide Web: You can also find W1AW code practice here on ARRLWeb, in MP3 format. Other resources can be found on the ARRLWeb Learn CW page.

    W1AW Qualifying Runs are sent on the same frequencies as the Morse code transmissions. West Coast Qualifying Runs are also transmitted monthly by either K6YR on approximately 3590 kHz, or other West Coast stations on various frequencies.  At the beginning of each code practice session, the schedule for the next qualifying run is presented. Underline one minute of the highest speed you copied, certify that your copy was made without aid, and send it to ARRL for grading. Please include your name, call sign (if any) and complete mailing address. The initial certificate is available for a $10 fee. Subsequent endorsement stickers are available for a $7.50 fee.
