North American (DC) CW Weekend 7-9 June 2024


This year’s North American CW Weekend is happening June 7-9, 2024.

As in the past, the Weekend is primarily aimed at those amateur radio operators with a particular interest in Morse code (CW) operation – FOC, CWOPS, SKCC, FISTS – but anyone with an interest in Morse code communication is welcome.

After two years of cancellations due to COVID restrictions, we had good get-togethers in 2022 and 2023. We are delighted to welcome regulars back, and look forward to meeting some new players.  

With the recent increased concerns about an upturn of Covid-19, we are asking participants to be vaccinated and to use good sense with respect to any recommendations about COVID in force at the time of the weekend. At this point, masks are not required.

There is a nominal registration of $25 per couple or $15 per single person. This will help defray costs and fees. Any excess will be donated to the CWOPS Scholarship fund. Please send your check, made out to “Don Lynch W4ZYT” to:

1517 West Little Neck Road

Virginia Beach, VA  23452-4717
