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 about 1993 This has got to be one of the most enjoyable digital modes' on the amateur bands, but alas its seldom heard today The best program for hell without a doubt was  written  by Nino/ IZ8BLY its still available today

Its not really possible to make a ham radio site without at least mentioning Morse code or CW as it was usually referred to as

Once the principle mode of communications but now sadly only heard on the amateur radio bands.

Japanese Morse code is interesting I use to work Tokyo radio and chosi radio on CW the Japanese operators would work several foreign ships using international Morse code only to change instantly to Japanese Morse when communicating with one of their own vessels. It’s Morse but sounds completely different for someone use to hearing only international Morse code.

Other languages include a few different Morse code characters there are some new characters have found their way into the alphabet notable the @ sign

If you want to learn Morse it’s 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 that’s with doing a couple of hours practice every day. 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 ( and write or type it down ) 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
