- Alan Maenchen (AD6E/KH6TU) is taking registrations for his April 2019 online CW class. According to Alan, the class “is an on-line video chat meeting twice a week for eight weeks for an hour each. Exact days and time could change depending on student availability. Since this is an internet based virtual classroom, no commute is needed. You can do this from home. Technician class hams can participate and practice their skills on their 80, 40, 15 and 10M CW allocations.” More information at: https://cwops.org/cw-academy-2/
