Had a disaster here at the house and lost the website I was using to learn code. It was really OLD recordings of a guy teaching you code. I imagine they came off of a record or something and were 10-15 minute lessons. He used all the style phonetitcs but I really liked the pace he gave the lessons at and had partially worked thru them but forgot the name and lost the link. Any help?

Here are the Signal Corps training records. They're pretty old.

Gonna have to do more research to find it. I was part way thru the course. He had a pic on the webpage and the guy at the start talked about how it was often used in scouting.

All he did basically in each lesson was throw in a new series of letters, then you copied them as he gave the code etc...There were probably 30+ lessons. I found it pretty good but they were definetly old because he used the old style phonetics.

Found it. It's old and pretty simple but I found it effective to learn just the basics. I guess there are only about a dozen recordings. I got partway thru when I had my disaster.

Definitely has a touch of the ol' "banana boat swing" to his fist. Must be a bug enthusiast.
The lengthened "dahs" do make for easier copy when learning, though.

Ha, ha....first thing I thought when I listened to it was that he must be using a bug.

A friend gave me the entire 'boxed set' of the Signal Corps records, got lost in numerous moves over the last 40 years.
Thanks for the link.

very interesting link. thank you for sharing. listening to it now. i very much like the old school feel, as well.

i also think it's pretty cool that the narrator in the audio files is the hams' father. a nice tribute to his dad, continuing to share the education w/ others. thumbs up to that.

This is great! I am trying to learn Morse, and these tacks are pretty easy to follow. Thanks!

It's definetly a no BS approach I think. Seems to be working so far.
