I started out with G4FON, and didn't seem to get the hang of it, so I sent off for the full package from Dr. Wheeler back in '06. It was the best 70 bucks I've spent in my life. Read the glowing reviews of people that actually learned with Code Quick. If you read the reviews for G4FON, you'll find ONE guy that actually learned the code with it, all the others used it for speed building (as I do too!). CQ has you learning with an 18 wpm character speed. Please don't take this as a shot at LCWOL, JUST LEARN MORSE, or G4FON these are superb programs and a great gift to the CW community. Personally though, I would like to see a free
sound alike Morse program put out there.
I often think about all the people that check into this forum, say that they are learning the code, and are never heard from again
. You need to learn the characters before you can build speed, and I'm not ashamed of my Code Quick training wheels. I'm copying into the 30's, and even picking words out at 50wpm. DAH DI DIT is every bit the sound alike that DOG DID IT is.
