The Australian & New Zealand Chapter of the FISTS Club

Welcome to FISTS Down Under!

FISTS Downunder supports the use, preservation and education of Morse code – The club is devoted exclusively to CW operators, CW operating and people who are passionate about Morse code.

We have three straightforward goals:

» Further the use of CW (Morse Code)
» Engender friendships among members
» Encourage newcomers to use CW (Morse Code)

FISTS Downunder is the chapter of the FISTS Club (International Morse Preservation Society). that services Australia and New Zealand.

The FISTS Club was founded in 1987 by Geo Longden G3ZQS of Darwen, Lancashire, England, after recognising a need for a club in which veteran operators would help newcomers and less-experienced operators learn and improve CW (Morse Code) proficiency.
