Activity Week

This is a friendly non-contest style event to encourage CW operators old and new. QRS operators especially made welcome. Whilst the object is contact as many radio amateurs as possible in a week, it is hoped that a QSO goes beyond just an exchange of RST and becomes a CW chat for as long a duration as you wish.
