    11 year-old passes morse test

    Morse code received a boost from the younger generation, on the 24th June 2020, when 11-year-old Ryan Morrison from Stillorgan, Co. Dublin took and passed his Morse code test.

    Conducting the test were IRTS Chief Morse tester Dave Moore EI4BZ and Jerry Cahill EI6BT.
    Ryan was delighted to pass the Morse test after practicing for five months at twenty minutes per day.

    Ryan is looking forward to sitting the radio theory test on 25th July in the Maldron Hotel, Tallaght and we wish him every success.

    Great job Ryan. An inspiration to the older amateurs who are also trying. I suspect the key thing to learn from Ryan is the daily practice.

    Congrats to Ryan! I don't know the speed he copied, but I copied 5 WPM at age 13 to qualify for my Novice license. At Ryan's age, his brain is like a sponge, and I'm confident he'll become a fine Ham Op. BTW, when I was 11, I was too much into astronomy and other sciences......I didn't even know that Amateur Radio was a "thing"........
