The reliable path to becoming a Morse Code expert

Receiving

Principle: Do not try to teach your ears through the detour of your eyes or You write what you hear - NOT what you see!

helps to learn receiving as efficiently as possible.

Important:

Master the receiving: Because secure recording is the key to successful keys later!

45+1 

counts the ham radio morse character set.

The amateur Morse code set includes 45 +1 characters: 

Of course, the Morse Disease Character Set is included in iMorsix according to the table - since a short time with @ .

The iMorsix app offers a selection of learning methods that have already made it 1000 times successful. It remains exciting! 

Let's go!

 7 STEP's to success:

 STEP 1 start the Basic-course with lesson 0.

STEP 2 faster now! Set your individual recording speed.

STEP 3 Progress with different programmed texts.  

STEP 4 to practise with iMorsix shuffle or randomiser methods (without "memory-effects").

STEP 5 "To be or not to be": Handling of malfunctions (QRM or QRN).

STEP 6  Difficult characters? Only works with randomise functions.

  

STEP 7  Keying now! Are you ready now to key "Free exercise"?

But step by step..!

STEP 1

The exercises in The Basic Course.

START!

Find the connecting switches: Click "?"-symbol (upper right side of "Text libary" site). 

iMorsix help

Blue "i"-symbols always help if there are any ambiguities in the app, right where you are!

The Morse Basic Course.

Go to the main menu

Click "Basic CW Course & libaries" > "Basic CW Course".

Below you will find further helpful forms and functions of the "Green InApps" after the Morse-Basic-Course. Please scroll down.

60/5: 

reasons - good from experience!

iMorsix has limited the drawing speed in the Morse basic course. 

The speed of characters is limited to FIX 60 per minute (cpm).

The speed of words is limited to FIX 5 per minute (wpm).

The iMorsix philosophy: 

With a tempo of 60 per minute (cpm) you learn Morse code based on your "melody".  

With Tempo 5 words per minute (wpm) you have enough time to focus on writing.

Once they know the signs of their point-and-dash composition by heart, they will only follow their melody. 

They write what they hear, NOT what they see - in this sense "courage to the gap". All beginners write mistakes, that's perfectly normal! The iMorsix team is always there to help!

START now with lesson 0! 

Learning the amateur radio character set with the iMorsix method: The order of the 45 characters is didactically sound. Successes confirm our presentation.

Desired lesson, e.g. 0, then click on the "i"-symbol.

The characters from Lesson 0 are displayed. 

10 exercises per basic lesson are available with the corresponding characters. Lesson 0, after selecting the lesson, click on the arrow symbol.: (exercises 300 to 309). 

Text below: 302.

Conclusion: Once you know the characters of their dot-dash composition by heart, concentrate ONLY after their tune!

Let's go!


Per lesson in the basic course, there are 10 pre-programmed exercises per lesson that you will write and correct.

Done!!

Will you be proud to learn after successfully learning the 10 lessons.

STEP 2

 Although I now know the 45 characters, but I'm not quiet sure everything to know!

Practice, practice, practice - but useful!

 

iMorsix has limited the drawing speed in the Morse basic course. 

More speed now? 

IMPORTANT TO CHANGE YOUR DRAWING SPEED!

How do I find my recording pace? Note beforehand ... 

  The connecting In Apps

To find the personal read- or write-speed after imorsix-basic course, first download the in-apps "Shuffle functions" and/or "Randomiser functions" from the "Extending iMorsix" menu. 

After you are able to set your personally speed on the "SPEED"-site of the iMorsix-app.

 To set YOUR OWN individual speed!

Record faster?

Choose the character and the touch speed according to your level of training.

About the readability

the recorded Morse code plays the decisive role:

Two values are adjustable: Character and scan speed, simply turn the finger vertically to the desired value. 

By changing the "Tast" speed, the word spaces are reduced or increased, and the readability of the recording fits them precisely to their ability.

 Your drawing and keying speed:

 Two values can be preset:

Simply turn the desired value vertically to the desired value with your finger. 

By changing the "Chars-Speed" speed in relation to the "Extra space", spaces between words are enlarged, which promotes readability for training. After this practice phase, you will return to normal settings: (drawing speed = touching speed).

 

Please take a moment to find your individual settings and you will be sure of learning success!

STEP 3

More progress now with programmed texts. 

 Programmed texts:

The "textbook" contains 100 permanently programmed texts, numbers 400 - 499 containing 155 - 441 characters.

The iMorsix recording strategies:

 Once the 100 texts have been successfully recorded and corrected, please do not resort to them, because "memory effects" mislead them into a false educational status and rob them of unnecessary training time!

Remember the "MEMORY-EFFECTS"!

 iMorsix has something against memory effects: Use Shuffle- and random-functions!


Please watch VIDEO below!

IMPORTANT:

After "Practice Texts" change to "Shuffle functions"! 

STEP 4

 The Shuffle- and randomiser-functions.

MEMORY EFFECTS or "DEJA VUE'S" were yesterday! 

EXERCISES in random functions REPEAT NEVER! Thanks to the InApps "Shuffle functions" or "Random functions" it is possible to put exercises for receiving individually according to the current state of knowledge. It adapts to the current personal needs, practices efficiently where necessary and thus saves valuable training time.

Shuffle functions

Thanks to shuffle functions, text repetitions are excluded!

STEP 5

QRM or QRN? 

 Disruptions.

"To be or not to be"!?

A minor matter can become the main thing:

The handling of malfunctions (QRM or QRN) on an HF band often determines the successful completion of a QSO! 

Get the InApp "QRM interference": 

Manage QRM settings: Go to iMorsix "Main menu" > "Expand iMorsix" > "QRM interference" and download the InApp. 

The sooner you get used to background noises (QRM) while recording, the easier it is to find "life" in practice on an HF band. 

iMorsix provides some variations on the InApp "glitches" to practice, which can be switched on or off as desired.Recommendation: Switch on the switch "Warm Noise" permanently, because on every shortwave band, besides QRM, they are always sprinkled with a kind of "tinnitus" (background noise of the transceiver).


QRM or QRN

 QRM & QRN but as much as YOU want! 

More then lot of words: Start the VIDEO below!

STEP 6

Lessons or characters to repeat?

Practice, practice, practice - but simple and useful!

It only works with randomiser functions! 

 You have to repeat lessons?

  Click on "Selected Lessons", enter desired lessons. Activate appropriate switches. 

"Lessons from Lessons" as well as current switch positions in "Select a Lesson" will now be displayed.

Start sequence >: iMorsix now generates a sequence ONLY from characters of the preselected lessons. 

Any "difficult" characters?

Problems with any characters?  Just choose the appropriate lessons? 

(Stepless enlargement as required: Hold down the control key and turn the mouse wheel.)

If they dominate the receiving, the keys come almost by themselves.

If they barely master the recording and still start with keys, they are always in danger of falling into the "thought mode" such as: "how was it again?" - which will really hamper their giving ..!
