I just took (and passed) my General upgrade. I had no problem with either the code or theory.

I used Code Quick to learn the letters and numbers, (I ignored the prosigns, but should not have). I then used a code tutor from the New Zealand ART to practice QSOs and such. The program from NZART was real good practice as they put out lots of Cricket scores. Unexpected names and numbers thrown in really helped me learn.

Anyway, the biggest hurdle to learning code - Stop complaining, collecting programs or tapes. Just SHUT UP and START.

congrats, and good luck here is my fav for learning the code, you just have to decide to do it and you will..

go to  http://www.g4fon.co.uk/  and down load his free  soft ware.  there is also a program there you can use to type in on the computer and it scores for you too.  this is the koch method. you start with 2 characters at 20 wpm, thenlisten and copy for 5 minutes.  when you get 90% on the two, add one letter and go again.  when you have all of the 46 numbers, prosigns and letters learned, you know code at 20 wpm, which is useful, and you can pass the 5 wpm test in your sleep..  Ray has made this a great program  73  tom N6AJR
