New Club for Morse Code Enthusiasts

A new club has been formed among Amateur Radio operators who are Morse Code (CW) enthusiasts.† It is called The CW Operatorsí Club (CWops).† CWops encourages the use of CW in Amateur communications, and it promotes goodwill among Amateurs around the world by planned CW activities.

CWops is international in scope, membership and management.† Its focus is the use of CW, whether for contesting, DXing or rag-chewing.† Moreover, it promotes every form of sending -- if it's CW, CWops supports it!

For further information, go to www.cwops.org.† There you will find everything that you might want to know about CWops, including our bylaws and articles of incorporation, our planned activities, an explanation of how to become a member, and a list of current members.

Chartered February 15, 1962
QCWA Chapter 12 meets on the 3rd Saturday every month at Noon at the Piccadilly American Cooking restaurant at 8301 West Flagler Street in Miami.

The Andy Clark Chapter 12 was charted February 15th 1962 as the Southeast Chapter #12. On January 14th 1999 the name of the chapter was changed to The Andy Clark Chapter 12 in Andy's Memory. Andy became a silent key on December 31st 1998. Andy was a Florida Legend in the Florida Ham Community.

Andy was born in Kansas on May 21st 1923. He was first licensed as W9KCS at the age of 16. He joined the US Navy during world War II and lost several fingers during a accident on shipboard.

He founded and published "Florida Skip", a ham magazine that carried the news of all the Ham activities in the state of Florida. He was a life member of QCWA and ARRL. He was a FCC section Emergency Coordinator in addition to being Chairman of the Community Red Cross. He was employed for many years as a radio operator at Aeronautical Radio. He was President of Chapter 12 many times and served as its guiding light.

Public Service was always a word he associated with ham radio. He was a Florida legend in Amateur Radio and our chapter felt we needed to honor Andy by naming our chapter after him.
