First Class CW Operators' Club



The next Bug Day is Saturday 15 July 2023


(Starts Friday evening in the US)

Bug that belonged to Summer, VE5SDH (sk)

There has been continued interest in an activity twice per year (to run alongside the Mechanical Key Days) where the idea is to get on the air using those bug keys. It is open to both FOC members and non-members. 

The exchange is expected to include, at the very least, a description of the bug being used.

Calling CQ Bug Day is suggested.  Frequencies are 25 khz above most band edges and up as needed.

Please send a list of stations worked using bugs and your vote for best bug fist to Benny K5KV.  

Participants can contact Benny K5KV at email listed on with questions.
