NOT BY SIGHT...THE WRONG WAY
USE THOSE OLD DOT n DASH

Punctuation Morse Sound Sounds Like
From the editor: Learning Morse Code by
"sound" is the only method that works for building code copy speed! When
you hear Morse Code on your reciever, and you want to be able to convert
what your ears hear to understandable letters, numbers, etc,
then by eliminating all of the wrong methods you may have
learned, you increase the "processing" time of your brain tremendously!
When you hear "di-dah" you will know instantly that this was the letter A.
Not one dit or dot and one dah or dash = A.
If you try to do the "brain conversion" any other way than by sound, then while your brain is "processing" the wrong way, several other Morse code characters have passed you by and you are lost. You missed several characters and they are gone!
To increase your copy speed, you
must be able to instantly convert the rhythm of
the sounds you hear to understandable copy. Trying to count
the dots and dashes, then visually "picture" them from a dot dash
"chart" in your brain and then converting them to understandable
copy will surely slow you down. Learning Morse code by sound (the
rhythm or pattern of the sound), like it was a musical note, is
the only way to learn Morse code. After you are very proficient,
which comes from much practice, you will hear entire
words rather than just a bunch of di's and dah's strung
