  1. I learned morse code earlier this year in just about a week and a half. It's not to difficult. Now i can write practically anything in morse code. Although im not fluent enough to know what something is just by hearing it so i do have to get better. i do realize that the way i learned it was a mistake though

  2. I’ve been trying to learn with the chart and with the list with the dots and dashes… Brah , the way this guy explained made so much sense, now I can actually hear Morse code, you’re a legend mate

  3. I learned the code back in the early 90’s. I had a Technician Plus license which I later had to convert to a Technician license not by choice because I was really proud of that Plus on the end. I was studying for my General exam & the 13 WPM test when the FCC pulled the rug out from under my feet by scrambling everything. Unfortunately for me I was disgusted by the whole thing I never sat for the General. Now I think I might try again. Can you make a recommendation for good quality General Test Material?

  4. Is the Vibrokeyer your favorite keyer? I see you used the iambic key like a single lever key. You used three motions to get letter K, whereas iambic keying allows that with only two. I have both iambic and single-lever keys, and I clearly prefer the Vibrokeyer. Less mistakes for me.

  5. They need to teach this to us from our primary school, even if we don't use it it seems a quite a important language considering it might come to use some way

  6. Actually the USAF taught me the tap code that was used by POWs during Vietnam War – which is 1000x simpler than Morse. Aviation uses Morse to identify Navaids so although they’re printed on the charts it would be nice is I could simply recognize the letter sounds when I hear them.

  7. 8:52 – That's fast, but I still hear the number of dits as 3 (S), then 4 (H). Anyone else who counts the dits at 20? At least I don't keep that visual chart mentioned at 5:34!

  8. If only 50 plus years ago I knew "don't count dots and dashes"…. LOL I'm an Extra Class ticket holder and I still suck at code. Because I memorized a chart long before I ever heard CW on a radio. At ten or eleven I was repairing shortwave radios I found thrown away in alley ways in Detroit, refurbishing them, and knew enough to set up antennas. I still didn't even know about ham radio until I was in High School. Joined the military as a communicator – STILL didn't a ham license. Finally, in 1991 I got my license. And continued on with communications with the military and Missile Defense, but STILL can't do code well. Now, I know the secret. So for the guys and girls thinking it's a "parlor trick" or "joke" or "I can text someone"….. remember, CW is faster, if you know how to do it 😉

  10. Sub'd and Unsub'd within the first 6 minutes of this video. I'm tired of being patronized by this guy. He thinks I have a paper chart AND shredder… then he has the gull to say he'll sit there and wait for me to be done shredding. JESUS DUDE! WHO DO YOU THINK I AM? Not everyone is that cookie cutter image you think you have in your head (we're not in the 50's anymore, FYI).
