In case you can't read, it it says
THE LEFT PADDLE IS FOR DOTS AND THE RIGHT FOR DASHES AR.
Right, I listened agn and copied it now. tks.
Sri, obviously I have a different sense of humour, I don't find this funny at all. Just like that UU22UU "music" which was certainly meant as text because the text was printed below it, I keep thinking the guy killed the code with the omission of the letter space in "wire". Word separations are essential for copy by head, and omission of letterspaces is ridiculous and a shame, not funny. Everybody can make an error, for you tube you have the chance to correct it before you publish it.
Other guys on you tube are demonstrating a straight key with the hand flat on the surface or floating, and touchhing the key only with the top of the straightened finger. Or they have a set of iambic paddles, a Begali signature, only what is said the best is good enough for them, and make the C like you do on a mechanical bug. And - mind you -the V by pushing 3 times in a sequence the dot lever.
Not the way to conserve Morse code, and to teach the younger guys.
When a few guys (1% of starters) learn the code, (99% start, waste their worthless time by never getting a result, because they are missing perseverance) and listen on the bands and can't copy what is sent when they are able to copy machine code, it is obvious stupid behavior not to sent the best way you can.
I copied an archive tape from a coastal station, recorded by Ring Jr, and available on Internet. I thought they used a machine tape, till the guy made an error slowed down, paused and gave his 8 dits, I was amazed. That is craftmanship. My opinion is that whatever you do, do the best you can.
