CW is dead – Official.

CW is dead! It must be true was on the telly.

On UK TV show Most Haunted Live at the former RAF base at West Raynham in Norfolk Yvette Fielding and her team sent Morse Code messages using an iPhone application in an attempt to contact the dead.  Naturally a series of knocks were heard in reply.

What sort of weak-minded idiot watches this superstitious crap? Why on Earth would any self repecting ghost want to talk to this bunch of fakers? Using an iPhone to send Morse Code would surely have any dead CW ops spinning in their graves. They would have had a better chance of contacting the dead by sending their CW on two metres or having a word on certain 80 metre nets where someone will be able to pass a message on for them sooner or later.

Personally the only ghosts that interest me are the ones in Ghostbusters Three when it finally gets made.

  1. Actually calling CQ on two metres FM around here is like trying to contact the dead!

  2. Hi Kevin,

    Well imagine what it is like on 2m CW then!

    Not quite that bad on FM around here, but getting that way. Nothing like when I was first licensed, you often had to go on 2m SSB just to find a free space.

    Tnx Steve GW7AAV 73

  3. Having served in the armoury at west Raynham in the 50’s the only spirits I came across, came in glasses that you had to pay for at the bar. Any previous service personell from WR dead or alive is not likely to be hanging around there at this time of year in my experience, there are warmer stations than WR to haunt. Lets face it if you have served there you did not want to hang around when you were not on duty.
