Oohhhhhhhhh (clutches handbag) those that could recieve at 36 tended to send like they had broken fingers.

I AM NOT ******* SENDING INTERMITTENTLY

No Cabana, the speed is fixed by the sender, he is altering the tone to hopefully reduce the distracting factors of the faster and slower morse signals nearby. As well as altering tone he is altering the frequency he is tuned to very finely, to optimize the signal he is listening to.

QST is a broadcast to all stations/ all Hams
de this is
W1AW his callsign, almost poetic in a morse sense

Silly boy. Don't you know that all infantry Regimental signallers class 1 and Regimental Signal Instructors were taught morse code at the good old School of I at Warminster?

I did my courses in '79 and '80 but could only manage 14 wpm...

CQ0A is about all I can remember these days.

Never ceases to amaze me that people view Morse as some sort of black art. One bloke was chuffed he could do 5wpm...
Oi! ....Steady, I was very proud of my achievement........those 10 inch shutters don't move that fast you know ...at 10 wpm receiving I passed out....it took the Chief Yeoman about ten seconds to bring me round.... with a carefully deployed steaming bat.....long break Desig WTF ?


( we had an RS who was a radio ham with a 'twitcher' - he reckoned 38wpm was his best....not sure he could read at that tho)

In the early 70s I did Merchant navy radio courses at nautical college through Marconi (MRGTC & MRRTC) a solid year of hell & totally useless in my after life thanks to the satellite 'phone.

Continuation Morse training at xx wpm. Standby, read - in that trying to be well spoken Geordie accent
BT (long break)

I really liked it, Plain text or 5 Figure groups

A good feeling at the end when you heard the last BT knowing you had a good run.

I've been messing around with online morse generators and other programms, wouldn't mind some of those old tapes though just for the nostalgia.

I think it would also be therapeutic, getting some double runs down on paper.

During my A1 in the '60's we spent some time listening in on Portishead Radio. We become so proficient that we could read 35wpm. Come the actual test at 25wpm we all failed.....:(
