Guys,

I am trying to find a method to listen to CW while I am not in the shack or in front of a computer to assist in the learning process.  Are there any recordings that say the character and then play the character in CW multiple times and then repeat?

I figure I can listen to something like this in the car to associate the character to the sound.

Thanks!

I'd make custom recordings using Just Learn Morse Code program.  The author hangs out on these forums.  The Kotch method uses only 2 characters to start.  If your goal is 15 or 20 wpm, before adding another character, you'd find you brain is plenty exercised.  

wishing I could undo all those hours of sending and slow speed learning all 26 characters.

Fifty years ago many of us learned code with the basic Rider learn CW set of phonograph records that did just that.  Ten or fifteen years ago there was a fairly obnoxious code-learning cassette tape that also pronounced the character to the accompaniment of a musical beat.

HI all..

I have a little program that was free, called....MP3myMP3......from memory you can switch inputs easy....so if you want to make you own.....I guess you could use a Mic, and a code program...

I just tried it from FLDigi where I could enter "A" and few times and record it on MP3.....then you just click to mic input and say....A....hihi..

Hi,

I too am a returning CW geek trying to improve my speed from the paltry 15wpm to a ragchewing 30 by the year end. 

I have tried this  ARRL's MP3

http://www.arrl.org/w1aw/morse.html

but when I try to save it on my Mac i get the rror message " cannot save as ...then the file name".  Is there something else I need to do before it will let me save?

There is the Jerry Ziliak KB6MT course that does this - and this was the way I learned (finally after several different methods!) of learning CW.  They were recorded on cassette in the 80's, but someone sells them on an mp3 cd out there if you do a google search (I bought both, one in the late 80's and the mp3 version a few years ago)...

I can copy/send around 10 WPM and on a good evening 15 WPM.
Would the Jerry Ziliak, KB6MT code CD's be of much help getting faster?

I found the source to order them.

He goes up to 25 wpm, I believe.  I tried lots of different code courses (ARRL, WB6NOA, K7OQ, etc.) and this was the one that worked for me.

I use my iPhone. There are a variety of great apps, including:

CWtext - will play from a list of the 100, or 500, most common words, as well as fairy tales, numbers, callsigns, q-codes, etc. It can display the text for you, so if you miss something a quick glance at the screen will show you. The delay in displaying is configurable, as is the speed, farnsworth mode, etc.

Dah Dit - Fantastic for when you're just starting to learn the code - it will sound out a character 3 times, and then a voice will announce the character. It also does words, although these are not spoken afterwards.

HamMorse - will sound out text from a variety of RSS feeds (e.g. BBC news, etc.), does Koch mode, prosigns, sample QSOs, etc. and display the text.

All of these will generate codes at speeds up to 50wpm or higher.
