About the Lids CW society

The Lids Society was born on the May bank holiday weekend, 2014. Inaugural founders, Matt M0ZAI and Ian MW0IAN (best callsign EVAR) were procrastinating on Twitter instead of doing CW. After having decided that they should start a CW club, everything, well, snowballed and here we are!


What are the Lids all about?

  • We love CW (morse). We don’t care how old you are or how good you are or how many wpm you can copy at.
  • We would rather have a members QSO than sit there listening to a CW trainer. Get on the air and make some beeps.
  • We like to think that CW can be fun, and isn’t some badge of honour or elite club.
