CW FISTS Tuesday Activity Day

Every Tuesday FISTS CW Club will be having a weekly Activity Day. Time will run from 0001 until 2400 GMT every Tuesday. No problem if you start a little early or run over. Not a contest, no need to submit your log, just get on the air and make some contacts!

One, two, several or a hundred QSOs it doesn't matter, just get on the air and make some QSOs.
We have invited the International FISTS Community to participate also so you may be able to work some new FISTS and new FISTS countries.

So dust off the key and get on the air and have some fun!

73 es CU on the bands!

What is FISTS?

FISTS is a well established and recognized CW (Morse Code) organization in the world of amateur radio. Founded in 1987 by Geo Longden, G3ZQS, it now has a world-wide membership in the thousands and growing daily.

What FISTS wants to accomplish.

       1. To further the use of CW on the amateur bands.
2. To encourage newcomers to the CW mode.
       3. To engender friendship within the membership.

How FISTS got its name, from our late founder, Geo G3ZQS (Silent Key).

       "I used to be a member of TOPS before it went out. Quote on their banner was "Where FISTS Make Friends". A "FIST", as you know, is nothing more than a CW ops' reference to another ops' keying characteristic. Phil (TOPS founder/sec) was delighted when I told him of the connection though he was later to follow his XYL and his beloved dog, but I will never forget the enthusiasm which came back from his old vibro. 73 de Geo"

There is only one requirement to Join FISTS:

A love of Morse code and a concern for its perpetuation.
