Welcome to CWops! Our goal is to bring together and support Amateur Radio operators who enjoy communicating by Morse Code (CW).
CWops is the go-to place for learning or practicing the art of CW. Our CW Academy teaches hundreds of new and former CW operators in an online, class-like environment that makes learning fun and effective. We also have a Youth CW Academy.
Our support for CW is on the air, too, with weekly CW QSO parties (CWT) and annual events (CWO). We even run special CWT sessions at slower speeds for newcomers, and we have on-air slow speed practice sessions.
CWops also gives out annual awards for CW achievement to those who foster the art of CW, and it supports awards to those who show achievement in domestic and international contests. In short, CWops is the CW organization that is doing everything possible to preserve and expand the use of CW on the ham radio bands.
CWops’ membership and management is international in scope. Its officers and directors come from virtually every continent, and its membership includes call signs from nearly 100 countries. The focus of the club is CW, whether for contesting, DXing or ragchewing. If it’s CW, CWops supports it!
The procedure for becoming a member is explained on the Membership page. See the BYLAWS and the ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION for the details of how the Club is administered, its goals, and membership process.
