Roger Western G3SXW writes: The CW bands will explode this Wednesday, 1st May, with FOC stations celebrating their 75th anniversary, for the whole month of May. Over 50 special *FOC suffix calls will be active and the ‘FOC75 Award’ is available for all to chase – see here for full details.

This is all about celebrating Morse code and friendship. We hope that you can join us for this major on-air CW event and HAVE FUN! Watch out for stations calling ‘CQ FOC75’.
