iOS CW app recommendations?
I would like to use an iPhone app to learn CW. I think that most of my learning and practice will take place on the train each day, so listening to live CW is out of the question. For those of you that may have already done this, I was wondering if you have a favorite CW app. Post your recommendations in the comments.
You may want to consider watching the webinar on “Improving Your CW Contest Speed” from August 2011:
Dean talks about several different ways, including a online app. No iPhone apps, but the information is valuable (though, LCWO.net probably would work on your iPhone).
I used the Code Quick method. It got me going just like it said it would, but I’m finding I now have to shed their mnemonic system in order to get more speed.
I love AA9PW’s HamMorse iOS app. Lot’s of options; Koch Method or not, letter/number combos or news streams for practice. Good stuff.
I have a CW trainer for iOS:
It’s at version 1.2 and I’m working on some updates … It was briefly reviewed earlier this year in The February issue of QST.
I just got an idea of using a small code practice oscillator fit for your shirt pocket with a earpiece on it for cw practice. Great way to waste time while on bus or train going to work or during lunch or something. With a small button for a code key. Great project even for a beginner
