Want to learn Morse code?
WARA has code files on this site. Click on the Education link at the top of the page and you’ll find the files at the bottom of the drop-down window. Download them to your phone or a digital recorder, then play them back. Easy to learn. Just be persistent.
Once you’ve mastered the letters and the numbers, check out these online sites for three Morse code programs. I’ve used the first two but not the third (although I understand it’s good, too.)
The nice thing about all three of these programs is the number of YouTube ‘help’ videos to help you configure and run them. Enjoy.
ARRL’s QST has an interesting article (dated November 2, 2017) titled New Digital Modes Changing Complexion of Bands and Perhaps Ham Radio. Click here to read this article.
