Morse Code – Letter Shape Learning System

Morse code is no longer required for an amateur radio ham license, but its still beneficial to learn.

I found this neat system created by the fine people at to teach the basics of Morse Code (Also referred to as CW or Constant Wave) in about an hour.

The SHAPES of the letters are used to remember the pattern of “dits” and “dahs” (dots and lines) that make up letters and numbers.

There also is an app created by the same people to help you practice.

Of course this is just a temporary crutch to get you started remembering enough to practice, and eventually you’ll want to just hear the letters like you would a second language without the interim translation step.
