A NEW SYSTEM FOR LEARNING MORSE CODE!

Back to top

The difficulty of becoming a proficient Morse Code operator is apparent in that at least 25 hours of intensive study is necessary for the average person to learn to copy a modest 5 wpm. After disappointing experiences in teaching with the present methods, I have set about to scientifically devise a "best way".

When you take a message delivered in code, have you ever caught yourself making up your mind as to what the letter being sent is before the character has been completely received? This is significant in my new system of teaching code to beginners. It is based on the simple  structure.                             

All communications are made up of bauds. A baud is a length of time  of tone or of silence. A baud is the length of time it takes to send a dot. Three bauds is the length of time the tone  is sounded to send a dash. One baud is the time the tone  is silenced between dots and dashes in building the code characters. Three bauds is the time of silence allowed  between characters to distinguish them from one another.

There must be a scientific order of learning in order to avoid unlearning bad habits which will slow up any study.

If a student learn the letters as they are usually taught without scientific order of sequence, bad habits will be formed which then must be unlearned. Receiving code is not the same problem as sending and for speed practice the teacher will send the code symbols the student has learned. Say E and  are the known characters and those are the ones the teaching is sending. The student will not wait until all dashes have been sent before deciding it is a and not a E .

In my new system the first characters taught are the 9 and . Nine dah-dah-dah-dah-dit and zero, dah-dah-dah-dah-dah have the similarity that the decision as to the identification of the character must be held off until the last tone is sounded. the beginner does not yet know that dah all by itself is letter  T, or that dah-dah is letter M or that dah-dah-dah is letter O, and is consequently not changing his mind regarding the identification of the character but is withholding his decision until the last one.   

The following is the progression of the characters as they should be taught. I have divided them into six lessons. Each lesson must be mastered before progressing to the nest.
