    This old WWII military training video is still useful regarding Morse code:

    The elements of military training:
    1. Tell them what you are going to tell them
    2. Tell them, and
    3. Tell them what you told them.

    Yeah, and then drill, drill, and drill some more. In between drills, wait, and wait, and wait some more.

    My Morse instructor was a retired Navy Radioman. I called him "Dad". :D

    the simplest Morse code letters, in order, are?

    before Carpal Tunnel Syndrome was a thing, it had a different name: Telegraphers Wrist. The straight key was the cause, the Vibroplex was the solution.

    Interesting that in a USN training film, the key does not have a Navy knob.

    The method and form they use is exactly the same as what I learned from ARRL publications 50 years ago.

    That is very cool, that your Dad was able to connect with you by sharing Morse code. I'm hoping to do that with my grandchildren. All of my kids are hams but are not into Morse code. I still have a chance now with the grandkids.

    Because I both use a straight key, and I am a software engineer, I have had to have carpal tunnel release on both of my wrists. That was over ten years ago. I now have to have the same surgeries since I have re-developed CTS.
