FOC Bug Day

Hi Everyone,
This list of bug enthusiasts was given to me by Benny, K5KV, but any omissions are my fault.
Iain, M0PCB, our activities coordinator will be announcing FOC Bug Day to take place on Saturday July 2nd 0000Z to 2400Z.
I should be the last person to be involved in something to do with using a bug but it seemed worthwhile to try having a one day get-together where only bugs are to be used.

Iain's notice will spell out the format of the exchange but as I recall we can send "CQ FOC Bug Day" and exchange names and, as a minimum, what sort of bug is being used but I would expect QSOs to be somewhat in the rag chew style.

No points or awards but participants can send me an e-mail giving their call signs and, if they want to, a vote for best bug fist.

I'll put together a list of participants and the call and name of the person voted best bug fist.
Non-Members are encouraged to participate in Bug Day and you can ask them to send me an e-mail, with a vote for best fist, if they wish to, so I can list their call.

The is my normal address but it might be easier for non-members to remember my alternate address:

There may be bugs in the above suggestions (pun partially intended) so please get back to me if you feel some modifications would help.

Good idea.

What's FOC?

Eric KE6US


FOC is the First class Operators Club.

It has been around since before WW II.

It is a UK based club and has some of the best CW operators about.

Many of my Elmers were/are members.

Local news article

Our local radio club was featured in a article in the local paper publicizing amateur radio.

I was able to get in a comment about SKCC and how it is growing in popularity with morse code enthusiasts.

Hi All,

Several things you might want to do to introduce yourself to land line American Morse telegraphy.

First, check out the Morse Telegraph Club's website at:

In particular, the documents available from these pages: and

Also, please consider joining the MTC. Membership is only $20 a year and you get for issues of our quarterly magazine, "Dots & Dashes".

You can find a membership application here:

Secondly, for over a decade now, thanks to one of our members, we have an Internet telegraph network which will allow you to not only hear authentic American Morse Code from any one of the broadcast wires (those from 100 to 199) but also actually communicate with other members, usually on wire 11.

I know I am frequently on wire 11 for the Saturday afternoon chat group starting at about 2 PM Eastern.

You don't need real instruments as the program will make the sounder clicks using your PC's sound system and you and send by typing on the keyboard.

But with simple interface circuitry, you can connect real telegraph keys and sounders to your PC computer and use them to listen and communicate.

Real instruments are frequently readily available on eBay.

The learn more about and download the free program, called MorseKOB, (version 2.5 is the PC version) see it's web site at:

Click on "Current activity" to see what wires have activity on them.
