Re: Learning Morse Code Advice Wanted

I can happily second the suggestion for CWOps Academy. I started with their basic class, and in the fall will be pushing through the advanced series. The class was able to take me from 5 wpm (basically just knowing what the letters are) to copying around 25 wpm in about 9 months. You will likely be able to get through the first course or two without a computer since much of the curriculum is web based, but a couple of the programs later in the courses are Windows PC only  


For learning the letters initially, I used Morse Toad and Morse-IT iOS apps. Both are pretty fun, and honestly I still use them to drill letter sounds occasionally just because they’re amusing. 


Good luck, and hope to hear you on the air!

Seventy-Three,
