  1. Hi, just a little mistake when you transmit the word "MUTT", however, thank you for your nice lessons.
    Bravo Andy

  2. I hit a real wall with the last lesson, had to go back and repeat it a few times, also helped by the CW Morse Trainer App. But I'm over that hump and this lesson has gone pretty well. Thank you for making them available, it's made a difference.

  3. I agree with leecetheartist. I simply couldn't overcome lesson 4's difficulties. I've repeated it several times and I've even restarted the whole guide a couple of times because of it.

  5. Thanks, Andy for doing this for us. This is my second time through the course. Its going really well this time and I feel like I'll be able to go on the air when I'm done. What does this come out to for WPM? Thanks, Bob

    1. Hey Bob. The speed is 5 WPM but if I can remember the settings on the program I used, the individual letters are sent at 10 WPM. I think the faster letter speed helps remember the individual rhythms of the letters, but the actual transmission speed is 5WPM. Thanks!

    2. I really hit the wall with G, was doing ok up till then.Suddenly I was copying only the Lesson 1 letters, everything else went from 95% copy to near zero. Is this a fatigue effect of some kind?

    3. You may have hit a wall. It happens to everyone. Mine were Y and Q which was bad because they were both in my original call sign. Take a break for a few days. G is just the opposite of W.

    4. tnx andy. Good to hear its not unusual. I've been messing around with online sending practice. I do the alphabet, if I draw a blank I look up a letter and start over and over. I made a complete errorless run through the alphabet today, even with a fist like a rhino missing three fingers and wearing boxing gloves. Odd thing- if I hear CQ I instantly recognize it at almost any speed, but it's the one thing I can't send well! Go figure!

  7. I am learning Morse just cause I am curious .This is the second time I am doing this course and I may have to repeat yet again. I think I am having real issues with listening(am probably a selective listener) Hopefully it improves when I finish the whole course. You sound fun, that's what keep's me going :-) Kudos

  8. Thanks Andy so much for this course I hit my wall on lesson 4 d and w I kept pushing through and it finally clicked :) now lesson 5 seems quite manageable. Thanks for putting this course out here for free when it could have easily been a paid course. You are what is great about the FREE Exchange of ideas/information on the Internet.
