I still have a great interest in learning Morsecode its been a thought of mine to learn the code since becoming an Amateur Radio operator in 2007.
Even though I progressed through all the licence levels I still never managed to learn Morse Code.
Now I am really going to learn it! 2014 is the year that I will give it my best shot it’s another challenge that I want to complete and I look forward with great anticipation to the day I attempt to make my first QSO using CW.
Many people have told me it’s like learning a new language and its important to hear the dah dits not just learn the code from paper but learn the code by sound.
I listen to a lot of music and I have always have music of some sort in my day so I am hoping that I have the ear to get to grips with this.
If I had started to learn this 20 years ago it probably would have been much easier but life is full of challenges.
The other snippet of advice I was given on numerous occasions is to never try sending until you are confident in receiving. Now that makes a lot of sense
So here I go on this great new challenge, wish me luck!
