CWops encourages the use of CW in Amateur communications, and it supports CW activity through planned events. CWops promotes goodwill among Amateurs throughout the world, and it fosters the education of young people and others in matters related to Amateur Radio. CWops is International in scope, membership and management. Its focus is the use of CW, whether for contesting, DXing or ragchewing. Moreover, it supports every form of sending – if it’s CW, CWops supports it!
