HELL SCHREIBER INVENTED BY DR HELL IN THE 1920'S AND USED EXTENSIVELY BY THE WERMACH IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR, HENCE FELD-HELL . ALSO USED BY PRESS AGENCIES - BY THE CHINESE PRESS UNTIL FAIRLY RECENTLY( STOPPED ABOUT 1993 I THINK ) THIS HAS GOT TO BE ONE OF THE MOST ENJOYABLE DIGITAL MODES' ON THE AMATEUR BANDS, BUT ALAS ITS SELDOM HEARD TODAY TODAY. THE BEST PROGRAM FOR HELL WITHOUT A DOUBT WAS  WRITTEN  BY NINO/ IZ8BLY ITS STILL AVAILABLE TODAY

MORSE CODE / CW

 

ITS NOT REALLY POSSIBLE TO MAKE A HAM RADIO SITE WITHOUT AT LEAST MENTIONING MORSE CODE OR CW AS IT WAS USUALLY REFERRED TO

ONCE THE MAIN STAY OF COMMUNICATIONS, BUT NOW SADLY ONLY HEARD ON THE AMATEUR RADIO BANDS.

YEARS AGO I SAILED ON SHIPS THAT ONLY HAD A H.F CW TRANSMITTER IN THE RADIO ROOM. THE ONLY OTHER FORM OF COMMUNICATION WAS MAYBE A 2 MHZ TRANSCEIVER UP ON THE BRIDGE ( COMPULSARY IF YOU WERE TRANSITING THE USA/CANADIAN GREAT LAKES ) AND A VHF SET ON THE BRIDGE. ALL MEDIUM & LONG DISTANCE COMMUNICATIONS BEING DONE  WITH CW

EVEN FROM THE SOUTH PACIFIC WE WERE EXPECTED TO STAY IN COMMUNICATION WITH PORTISHEAD RADIO, THE 'AREA SYSTEM' HAVING CLOSED WHEN THE UK LOST THE COMMONWEALTH SO TO SPEAK, AND IT WAS BEFORE MY TIME ANYWAY.

 

JAPENESE MORSE CODE IS INTERESTING  I USE TO WORK TOKYO RADIO AND CHOSI RADIO ON CW.  THE JAPENSES OPERATORS WOULD WORK SEVERAL FOREIGN SHIPS USING INTERNATIONAL MORSE CODE ONLY TO CHANGE INSTANTLY TO JAPENESE MORSE WHEN COMMUNICATING WITH ONE OF THEIR OWN VESSELS.WHICH MADE ONE THINK THAT YOU WERE LOSING THE PLOT AS YES ITS  MORSE BUT COMPLETLY DIFFERENT FOR SOMEONE USE TO HEARING ONLY  INTERNATIONAL MORSE CODE.

OTHER LANUAGES INCLUDE A FEW DIFFERENT MORSE CODE CHARACTERS)  A FEW NEW CHARACTERS HAVE FOUND THEIR WAY INTO THE ALPHABET NOTABLE THE @ SIGN

 I  WORKED A LOT  ON THE COAST OF CHINA AND A GREAT MANY  OF THE MESSAGES I HEARD COMING FROM CHINESE COAST STATIONS TO THEIR OWN SHIPS  WERE  4 FIGURE CODE GROUPS ( 4 NOT THE 5 THAT IS GENERALLY ASSOCIATED WITH OBS MESSAGES OR CODED MESSAGES ) BUT I COULD NEVER FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON

IF YOU WANT TO LEARN MORSE ITS NOT HARD BUT DOES TAKE A FEW MONTHS AND A BIT OF DEDICATION - IF YOU REALLY WANT TO LEARN IT THEN YOU WILL SUCCEED. TO GET UP TO ABOUT 12 - 15 WPM WILL TAKE ABOUT 3 MONTHS AND THATS WITH DOING A COUPLE OF HOURS PRACTICE EVERYDAY.DO NOT TRY TO USE A ELECTRONIC KEY TO SEND WITH UNTIL YOU ARE AT A GOOD RECEIVE STANDARD AND YOU CAN SEND ON A STRAIT KEY.SPEED COMES WITH TIME, ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS YOUR FIRST PRIORITY.PAY ATTENTION TO SPACING OF DOTS AND DASHES AND EQUALLY IMPORTANT IS THE  SPACING BETWEEN CHARACTERS AND SPACING BETWEEN WORDS.DO NOT TRY TO LEARN THE CODE TOTALLY ON YOUR OWN JOIN A GROUP WHERE YOU HAVE GOT SOMEONE TO LISTEN TO YOU AND CORRECT ERRORS YOU ARE MAKING.THERE ARE ALSO THE ACCENTED LETTERS TO LEARN BUT ITS MOST LIKELY A WASTE OF TIME FOR MOST PEOPLE TO LEARN NOW - DON'T DELUDE YOURSELF, IF YOU THINK YOU CAN READ MORSE CODE AT 30 WPM,GIVE YOURSELF A TEST USING A PROGRAM LIKE  < CW TYPE > AND SEE IF YOU CAN READ THE CODE FOR 10 MINUTES MAKING A MAXIMUM OF 2 OR 3 ERRORS ONLY. QUITE OFTEN I HEAR PEOPLE SAYING THAT THEY CAN READ MORSE AT SUCH & SUCH A SPEED, BUT IF THEY HAD TO WRITE THE CODE DOWN OR TYPE IT DIRECTLY ONTO A KEYBOARD I DOUBT THEY COULD PASS A 12 WPM TEST
