A handy application that allows you to learn more about Morse code and practice your skills in reading usual messages, abbreviations and Q codes
If you want to communicate with other users by using Morse code, you need to learn the alphabet code and other messages that are generally accepted by the community. Although you can find out the code by using the Internet, you need to practice your skills regularly in order to become accustomed to it.
Besides the Morse alphabet, this program provides you with a large list of abbreviations and Q codes. It allows you to listen to the messages and learn their meaning without looking for online sources.
Moreover, it allows you to practice your knowledge by playing random characters in order to identify them. The Quiz mode is designed to periodically test the ability to recognize a character and provides you with a list of items you need to improve.
The program includes a series of lessons and messages that can be configured in order to study the characters that you are having trouble with. Since the ability to recognize the sound output is very important, you have the option of changing the frequency, speed and sound level according to your preferences.
When practicing you can enter the dots and dashes by using the keyboard or connect a transmitter to your computer. If you are having problems using the program, the package includes multilingual help files. However, you might need to install the Windows Help Program to access them on recent Windows versions.
If you are just starting to learn Morse code, the CW_PLAYER is an essential tool for practicing and testing your skills on a daily basis.
