    CNN News in Morse Code

    Chris Kantarjiev K6DBG has set up an application that takes the CNN news feed on Twitter and converts it to Morse code.

    The Morse audio is streamed in a WinAmp format and so will NOT work with Windows Media Player. You need to install WinAmp on your PC, which is available from the URL below.

    Two varients of the Morse CNN news are available, slow and fast, at

    Chris K6DBG has also made available NN9U's CW practice tables and W1AWCW practice at

    I am not a CW guy, but this is a cool way to practice and learn. Awesome little application.

    Never been a fan of CNN, their a bunch of windbags putting out misinformation just for entertainment value. But if someone really wants to practice CW morse code then why don't the person just get on the air? Come on really, another ploy to advertise for CNN the most untrusted news in the world. A nice QSO on the hf bands is better to learn by picking up the key and practice practice practice. And leave the entertainment and distractions behind, get down to brass tacks or in this case a brass key!

    Waiting for the RTTY version, so I can crank up the noisy TeleTypes and remind myself what the newsrooms (newpaper and radio) sounded like in 1960s and 1970s. By 1980s, the whin of dot matrix printers replaced the AP news feed at the radio stations.

    Any chance this will ever work using Windows Media Player?

    Who wants to hear the news at all anymore. ;) Not much of it is good these days.

    Can't always get on the air to practice and stay proficient, so it's nice to have other ways to listen to CW (on the MP3 player/phone.)

    For those that have all day to sit in the shack and work CW, more power to you. Hope I have that time some day.
