Learning Morse Code in a Whole New Way
is a website called
that presents a new way to
learn Morse Code.
Rather than learning to interpret each character as a series of dots
and dashes, it helps train your brain to respond to a familiar sequence
of characters. According to the authors, it has been proven to be a
more natural way of learning. The old school method of listening for
dits and dahs was fine for receiving encrypted messages that had no
logical or predictable pattern (after all, that
is the goal of encryption). The Morse Fusion method uses novels
like Moby Dick and A Tale of Two Cities, and begins
with only oral pronunciation of each character and word for practice
writing what is heard. Then, you select characters that should be sent
as code rather than spoken characters, ranging from 0 (spoken characters
only) to all 26 plus numbers and punctuation. You might be surprised
at how confusing it can be to write down even the spoken letters at
15 wpm, and forget 30 wpm until after some practice. Free samples and
practice are available, but there is a modest subscription fee for anyone
wanting to really take advantage of the course. .. / .-- --- ..- .-..
