Handy CW Abbreviation Guide for CW Neophytes

As a CW newbie, I often wondered if I copied wrong or the use of certain letter sequences were intentional.  Some operators pepper their transmission with all kinds of seemingly meaningless abbreviations and “shortcuts” which are great for simplifying and speeding up the conversation… if you know what they mean!

I found this helpful guide on the internet , so I thought I would pass it along.

Enjoy!
