CW (“Morse Code”), while no longer required to earn an amateur radio license, is still alive and well on the ham bands! It has seen a resurgence in recent years. Often referred to as “the original digital mode”, CW offers some distinct advantages for communication in poor atmospheric conditions, in emergency situations, and where simpler and less power-hungry equipment is required to get the job done.
Message handling is the essence of emergency communications by radio amateurs. Emergency operations incorporate all methods of communications, including CW.
