Thread: LCWO vs CWOps?

Back to the Forum

I signed up for the Fall CW Academy course with CWOps, which bills itself as a better way to learn than Koch. (Especially for head copying.) I want to keep doing LCWO's course even though I keep frustrating myself by freezing up, but I don't want to have to unlearn things before the CW Academy course. Anyone have experience with both??

I expect you have to complete LCWO before starting with CWOps because the sequence of characters are probably different.

Why would you have to unlearn anything?

Every character learned on LCWO is an extra arrow in your quiver. Give it time.

Forgive me for saying so, but it seems to me that you are setting your goals too high: you are barely at lesson 7 of 40 and are planning on head-copying which comes after years of training, if at all.

There is an old French proverb I find quite relevant to my students these days:

"Qui trop embrasse, mal étreint."

It is almost untranslatable but means:

"He that embraces too much, does not hold well"

Jay Jordan,
When your level 1 CWops enrollment is in September, try to complete 40 lessons LCWO before start of CWOps course. There is a chance you can make it when you exercise 20/5. They exercise sending with feed back on ur fist, and make you familiar with rubber stamp QSO models.
