Join us in keeping CW alive and well on the 30m band

Pусский - Français - 日本語 - Deutsch - Nederlands - Español - Italiano - Português - Svenska


The 30m CW interest group encourages CW activity on 30m to ensure we do not lose this very special prime CW band to other modes, nor to other primary services. The best way to do this is to be active on 30m as much as possible.


30CW.net membership is open to CW operators who use or wish to use the 30m radio amateur band using CW for "non-5NN" activities and who support the specified aims below:

  • Promoting human CW QSO activity
  • Giving meaningful true signal reports
  • Encouraging newcomers to CW and 30m
  • Retaining bottom 30kHz exclusive for CW
  • Defending the traditional CW operating codes

If you agree with the above aims, please FIRST register using your CALLSIGN as your name at http://www.wikidot.com and after that confirm your Wikidot account registration via the link they send you by Email. After that you need to go to http://30cw.wikidot.com and click on the "Join" button (only visible before joining and before logging in after joining).

Remember, take care to register at Wikidot first with username of your CALLSIGN otherwise you'll need to go and change your "screen name" in settings to your CALLSIGN.


If you see "Please wait…" forever, try closing the "Please wait…" window and refresh, or login here.
If you're having problems joining, send an email to (dah-dah, dit, dah-dah, dah-di-di-dit, dit, di-dah-dit, di-di-dit, di-di-di-dit, di-dit, di-dah-dah-dit) AT 30cw DOT net.
