Slow Speed Saunter

The Straight Key Century Club (SKCC) is sponsoring a CW operating event on the first day of each month. The aim is to bring together operators at a slower CW pace, <12 WPM code speed. This is not a contest, but it is a great place for those who are working on their CW skills to get some on-the-air practice.
