Learning Morse Code in a Whole New Way

Learning Morse Code in a Whole New Way - RF CafeThere is a website called MorseFusion.com 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. .. / .-- --- ..- .-.. -.. / ... ..- -... ... -.-. .-. .. -... . / .. ..-. / .. / .... .- -.. / -- --- .-. . / - .. -- . .-.-.- (thanks to  the Morse Code Translator)
