I’m a new ham, got my ticket in October 2020 and I upgraded to Extra on December 2020, while the knowledge was bouncing around in my head, also to avoid the fees the FCC is implementing. I’ve always been interested in Morse code but don’t know how and where to start. As a kid I learned how to do SOS. Just because it’s such a international language that if I ever found myself lost somewhere in the woods or locked somewhere in some building I could use a flashlight or tap SOS. I’ve been doing some research and I keep getting mixed messages. Some people say learn by ear other say you have to learn by writing it down. After my exhausting research I was left confused and pulling my hair. So I figured I ask the people with actual experience with Morse. Where to begin? Any devices that help? Any instructional books or vids? Writing it or learning by listening to it? Anyone in the Orlando FL area that it’s willing to help? Thanks for any advice,73.
