WEST COAST NET TRAFFIC TRAINING

Introduction

The purpose of the training is to acquaint newcomers with traffic handling using CW. It is intended to give a basic orientation to trainees. The training will familiarize the trainee sufficiently to enable he or she to comfortably participate in the Slow Speed CW traffic nets; such as WCN.

Many times, trainees will enter traffic Nets with little or no knowledge. After a session is over, they usually are discouraged because they did not have the basic traffic handling knowledge. They are reluctant to check in (QNI) again. Hopefully, these sessions will overcome this. There are 166 messages in the training. The speed will be QRS. Refer to the attached Table of Contents.

The training sessions will usually consist of several messages, beginning with NR 1 as time permits. There are no exams.

Trainees may wish to refer to the following materials:

  • FSD-218 (two sided pink card) Amateur Message Form and ARRL Q signals.
  • FSD-3 ARRL Numbered Radiograms: these are the ARL coded numbers, needed when you receive ARL numbered radiograms to be decoded when delivering a message.
  • FSD-50 The ARRL Net Directory (which also has the FSD-3 on back inside cover.
  • The American Radio Relay League Radiogram (yellow blank form for writing messages). Photo copy a few, they work fine and you can become familiar with their use.

You can " homebrew " two logs: one for incoming messages and one for outgoing messages. It is a good idea to keep track of the training messages sent to you.
