Rants, Raves and Recipes from the Edge of Sanity
You have to be able to hear it and copy in your head. Shin-San in Japan thinks it is related to musical ability. I think he may be right. I have been told I can't carry a tune in a bucket and can't seem to break through 15 words per minute receiving. :( Shin is quite good and also plays the cello. TerryFla
I guess we read the dash/dots right to left and top down?neat pic though - thank you for posting this!
What is the procedure for starting a new character ? Wait approximately 3 - 5 seconds I suppose.
If the duration of a dot is taken to be one unit then that of a dash is three units. The space between the components of one character is one unit, between characters is three units and between words seven units.See: http://morsecode.scphillips.com/morse.htmlSome pretty good apps for smart phones are available also.

Back in the 70s, a co-worker of mine was trying to get his ham radio license, and back then you had to send and receive 5 words a minute of morse code. So we would speak to each other in code all day long, using "dih-dah" syllables. It probably drove the other workers nuts, but that's a good way to learn the code.Here's a phrase we used to say to other a lot. Now we could say it to Obama and all of the other statists who want to take our rights away: "dih-dih-dah-dit, dih-dih-dah, dah-dih-dah-dit, dah-dih-dah,, dah-dih-dah-dah, dah-dah-dah, dih-dih-dah"!--Rusty
