Lids CW

Lids CW, or the "Less Involved Data Society"is something of a laid back Morse Code group.

To quote from the Lids CW website...
LIDS is a ‘virtual’ radio club collectively run by a community of amateur radio operators on Twitter. Not to be confused with ‘lids’ in the derogatory sense (although with a self-deprecating hat-tip in that direction) LIDS is all about encouraging amateur radio operators to try something new, especially if it is CW.

It doesn’t matter how long you have been licensed; trying something for the first time can be a bit daunting. You’re not sure what to do, how things work, or the procedures and etiquette to use. LIDS is all about having a go. Knowledge and experience will come, but if you don’t try – and make the inevitable mistakes – then you will miss out.

One of the more well known 'champions' of this group is Michael (G0POT), he himself has a number of QRP portable operating videos on YouTube.

The Lids CW website has a good amount of links and CW operating info, and is well worth a look.
