Founded in 1938 and with its roots, history and management in the UK, The First Class CW Operators’ Club (FOC) promotes good CW (Morse Code) operating, activity, friendship and socialising via its worldwide membership of approximately 500. Members are active on all HF bands and the character of the club is best expressed in its motto: ”A man should keep his friendship in constant repair” – Samuel Johnson (1755).
FOC members aim to foster and encourage a high standard of CW operating ability and behaviour on the amateur bands, observe the licence conditions and principles of band planning, be considerate to other amateurs at all times, protect the future of the hobby through being active, encouraging newcomers and supporting national societies.

Please DO NOT send QSL cards through the Bureau. ONLY use OQRS.
Incoming QSL cards are not required for this activity. Responsible QSLing.
