One hour of action!

The band jumps to life on Wednesday at 13:00 UTC for one hour! It's called the CWops CWT mini-contest. As far as CW goes it is a busy 1 hour full of excellent CW operators and the speeds can sometimes get fast. For this very reason at my skill level, I search and pounce contacts. It's a nice way to spend an hour and for more info about the CWops and these mini contests they run check it out at this link.
