Morse Code on the internet.   Makezine.com vol 58 Aug 2017 issue has an article operating morse on internet connections using a Raspberry Pi.  The cost would be low.   If you ignore his laser-cut box.  It does appear interesting for someone who understands the Pi.  It uses something called WebSockets. 

Software should be at Github.com/theautodidacts/internettelegraph/releases
Perhaps someone who knows about the pi and internet connections could tell us old timers how it works, if it does and why I would want to send CW across the internet.

If you want morse code on the internet(is it really still continuous wave?) there's also CW.com.

Went to the Makezine site and searched, but came up with nothing.  I guess you have to buy the mag, or my typing skills weren't showing up.

I went to the Github and found a source file and a binary file, but I've never seen a Github with less information.  No "readme" file, no nothin.  Just the source and bin files.

Anyway - that aside - I can see that this sort of thing could be popular among certain hams living in retirement homes and such, where there are too many restrictions for regular on-the-air activity.

It seems that the new Opus, latency aware codec, coupled with some associated streaming software functionality, could be used for the "internet morse," and probably would be pretty good for it.   Methinks someone would have to run a "gathering place" server, which could list the "CQ callers" - and connect this to that.

Very interesting ...

That advice in there of transcribing  the code down as "dots" and "dashes"  and decoding it later... Now, the person that advised to do that, has never learned the code.

Although it's true I would not advise that, BUT that's how I taught myself Morse Code at a very young age, perhaps 8 years or so. I would listen to the coastal station loops and notice a pattern. ...- ...- ...- and I'd write it on the paper, each time the loop came around I'd have a bit more. I then looked up the letters and was confused: VVV VVV VVV DE VIS5 VIS5 VIS5 QSX 8 MC/S K or some such. But in time, I worked most of it out by comparing with others, and I got faster as I could not recognize the sounds of letters. All this mind you without any modulated tone, on an AM receiver, though 500kHz was usually modulated CW. So, it did not harm me to learn that way but I did not learn at slow speed, right away I was listening to at least 18-20 WPM even if at first I did write it down in that manner. So the advice is not totally off the mark and is practical in an emergency where someone doesn't have the time to learn it off the bat :-)

This was an april fools joke from Google.  There is a "dot dash" keyboard in the play store, I tried it, but it really really sucks if you know the code. because you have to hit a space bar after every character.  it is UNTIMED.  absolutely worthless.  If it allowed you to set a speed you could probably use it.  But you have to form a character and hit a space bar.  It really throws you off.

I suppose this may be in my future when they put me in the 'old folks home', but my mother was just 102 and still gets around.  Perhaps in another 30 years we will be using telepathy.

You hold a lot of faith in the development of humanity. I think it is in decline, our generation used 5% of its brainpower, generation X 3%, Y 2%, Z less than 1%. Telepathy was a skill of the past. They won't use communication in future, they will not only DO as they are told they will also THINK as they're told as this will wipe out all resistance in the name of Health and Safety, they will receive controlled electric shocks to the brain if they think the wrong thoughts. So it'll all be about reception.

Never.

If I need a computer then I might as well use a more efficient digital mode. I do prefer CW because you don't need a computer! One of CW's greater asset is its simplicity. Add a computer and that goes down the drain.

or maybe some other App ?

but - can you connect an SK ?
or - is that redundant too ?

ie: Internet CW will be nothing like the old Morse Code.
so, is it still going to be Morse Code, or will it be called some other name ?

  Gil ;  I agree! Best part of using code is the simple equipment needed...  No computer in this shack either!
          I keep it safely on the coffee table.
