First Class CW Operators’ Club (FOC)

The First Class CW Operators’ Club (FOC) was founded in 1938. The aim of the Club is to promote good CW (Morse code) operating, activity, friendship and socialising. The Club is UK-based, with many international members.

FOC has approximately 500 members, who will typically meet both on air and in person. The Club holds a wide range of social gatherings throughout the year, in many different countries. The character of the club is best expressed in its motto, “A man should keep his friendship in constant repair” (Samuel Johnson, 1755).

Membership of FOC is achieved through a process of nomination by existing members, based on on-air activity and other criteria which are explained on the Club’s web site.
