Koch Method CW Trainer This freeware software was written by Ray G4FON and is not only an excellent program for the learner, but also as and aid to improve receive proficiency for the experience Morse operator. It is widely acclaimed world wide and easy to use.

The good points of this program is the ability to add QRM, QRN and QSB at different levels and you can make it sound like you are working on the bands.

The morse speeds are adjustable and suitable for the Koch Method but are slightly limited and their is no option for using the keyboard to copy the Morse.

Just Learn Morse Code Just Learn Morse Code is free for personal, non-commercial hobby use, although you are encouraged to contribute when you find the program helpful.

This program is set up for using the Koch Method with Morse speeds full adjustable you will have to enter the options menu to enable it to send random 5 character groups but this is not a problem.
