Richard, eucwflagG0ILN, sends through a heads up on the forthcoming and very exciting  European Slow Morse Activity Week – EuCW/AGCW QRS Activity Week 2016.  The EuCW will take place this coming week Monday 25 April 00:00 – Friday 29 April 23:59 UTC.

The maximum speed is 14 wpm and any band can be used.  QSOs must be at least 5 minutes long.

The EuCW Week has a history dating back to 2001 when it was introduced by FISTS. The EuCW thanks FISTS for having this excellent idea and for doing all the work for an entire decade. Since 2012 the EuCW QRS work is organized by AGCW. Recognitions for the most active participants are issued,

For more information and a list of recommended frequencies visit the EuCW website.
