Is there any sourse I can access right now to listen to CW. I'm just learning code and I am using a computer program. But I'd like to hear some "real live" code just to get ready.

Any suggestions?

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

Glad you're interested in CW. If you have any kind of HF rig, and modest antenna, just go to about 14.040 during the daylight hours, and 7.030 when the Sun goes down, and listen to live QSO's.You will hear how it is really done, and you don't have to worry about hurting your rig as you are tuning for best signal reception, not transmitting. Start there, and find folks that you can copy, and go on from that point.

MORSE CODE IS A LANGUAGE.  IN ORDER TO MAKE IT WORK YOU SHOULD TALK TO SOMEONE USING MORSE. FIND A BUDDY GET SOME WIRE AND A PAIR OF BUZZERS AND KEYS.PUT YOUR BUDDY IN ONE ROOM AND YOURSELF IN ANOTHER ROOM AND TRY COMMUNICATING. IT'S AND IT WORKS.  JUST LISTENING WILL NEVER MAKE YOU A RADIO OPERATOR.  GOOD LUCK
