  • Learning Morse Code

    Anyone know any good resources for learning morse on web?
    Had a look on google but most of it seems to be people wanting money for programs that aren't that good

      Not sure on websites but if you've got a smartphone there's some half decent apps out there that don't cost very much.

        downloaded some apps but they aren't much good. Only let you put in a letter to translate it.
        GM perhaps you should read my first post again.

          There is quite a good android app called 'Morse CT'. It was free and certainly helped me with the basics !

            I have some very old DOS programmes for RoR, buoyage, something else ("nav") and signals. They don't seem to work on Windows 7 (or it might be a 64-bit issue) but I can e-mail them to you if you want to try getting them to run.

                    A tip for learning it that I found useful;

                    Group the letters into like groups, for instance I used; EISH, TMO, AWJ, NDB.. then pairs for the rest; KR, PX, LY etc.

                    Set yourself a target of learning one group a day (when you're bored between lectures or at lunch just write out the sequence saying it in your head, and add to it each day.. you eventually pick it up...

                    Then once you pass - you have the joy of learning it all over again for Chief Mates

                        Fine, I'll stop crayoning.

                        However, I did come across a whole load of free sites when googling "learning Morse Code Online"....

                            Most of them are pretty bad for learning morse for the signals exam as they either use sound instead of light, or just convert whatever you type in to morse, which is pretty useless for testing yourself as you know what you just typed in.
