Morse is a Language and not a Code and should not be learned as such and my views are held by other operators World Wide. Learning Morse Code by dits and dahs will haunt you for a long time and if you are counting dits and dahs I would recommend that you stop immediately and read my post on “Redefining Slow Morse in Amateur Radio”.
Learning Morse is not easy and you must be dedicated and willing to put aside at least half an hour a day every day for practice. You will find that sometimes you will struggle and get mental blocks on some characters, but remember that you would not be on your own as most operators have gone through that at some time or other. We have all persevered through the hurdles it can throw at you and now enjoy the music of Morse.
There are many different views on how to learn Morse and I may be a bit blinkered as I was taught Morse professionally in the UK Armed Forces using the Koch Method up to 20wpm in 1965 and it certainly worked for me. I have also trained other amateurs using this method which successfully secured their 12wpm Morse Ticket. I will be pleased to publish any comments to my methods, especially if another solution was offered which goes along with my way of thinking.
For more information on learning Morse a trip to John N1IRZ‘s website would be very beneficial to you and it will save me repeating what John has to say, then visit Ray G4FON’s website for the free download of his Koch Method Morse Trainer which will give you a good start in learning the language of Morse.
I don’t teach Morse any more, as there is no need with the personal computer and the software available and it is up to the student to be dedicated and manage his time, but I will be available to give guidance if called upon. Remember I want you to be able to learn and get up to the standard that you would like to attain as would most experienced operators, and we will help when help is required but the ball is in your court to be determined enough to learn.
