Code Quick The Fastest Way To Master Morse Code Since 1980


The secret to learning code right is to learn it as language. People who develop fast code skills (30wpm+) are without a doubt processing the code in the language centers of the brain. When you start learning code, if you try to do it as dahs and dits, the non- language part of the brain which usually deals with thuds, clunks and squeaks in your environment comes into play. This section of the brain is quite sound specific. If you learn code at 5wpm you will have a plateau at 8wpm. Next, work away at 8wpm and you will gain a new set of code which will take you to about 11wpm etc. It takes 5-6 SETS of code to do it this way. Farnsworth understood this fact so he taught code at 20wpm and varied the space between the characters to slow the code sent. His idea was great because he made sure you only learned code at one speed.
This is the easiest way to have the code stick and get through the 15WPM wall IF YOU DO IT THE WRONG WAY! Most people who try it as “dots and dashes” or “dahs and dits” never really become code proficient since they can only decipher code that is sent in a narrow window, say 12-15WPM window rate.
Code proficiency comes when you apply the language brain to the language task of learning code. We do this through sound alikes. Each character is actually heard at first in English instead of dahs and dits. It’s amazing the difference. Oh yes, just as an aside, we do follow the Farnsworth approach in that our code is actually formed at 7wpm faster than the speed we are teaching. We present the code at the same speed as normal speech so that it can be heard calling out the character sound alike in plain English. Amazingly, it just works!
