Here I collect ham radio related stuff/posts
CW means “Continuous Wave” and is an abbreviation for sending Morse code on a frequency.
Since it is a textonly communication it is similar to chatting on the internet but with some more common abbreviations .
I built a small cw training tool which one can use or adjust to learn morse code with the same tool on a mobile phone and on a desktop computer. It is open source.
Another thing I built for learning cw is a simple adapter for the morse training generator of my local Amateur Radio Club (DARC DOK E13). The description is in german. I built this for the morse training so people can use normal HiFi-headphones instead of special high impedance telegraphy headphones.
Ein CW Skimmer ist ein automatischer CW Dekoder der ganze Bandbereiche dekodiert und sichtbar macht. Hier z.b. mal DQ8Z in Neustadt/Hessen.
This is a very typical locator amateur radio operators use to exchange locations. It is based on a grid overlay of the earth. I played around with them a little bit and pushed some simple conversion code to github.
