I would like to learn morse code.
never mastered morse. fiddled around with Koch method and crash at 10 characters or so. Its a new years resolution for 2016 to plow thru!
I am just getting into ham radio. I am awaiting the arrival of my first radio from Amazon. Would be great to win.
I always wanted to learn morse code, this win would be great
Pick me. Pick me. Pick me! Love the newsletter. Need to learn the code!
Would love the opportunity to learn code with this tool.
Thanks for the contest. Good luck to all!
Great promotion, Thanks for the contest.
Thanks for the contest.
I’m a new ham who would love to learn CW.
Thanks for the chance to win the course.
Morse Code is the “OG” of communication!
Been working on learning CW. Hopefully this will help.
I looked hard at the Skilman method in the past, but for a myriad of reasons didn’t order the set. I am still very interested in improving my CW skills with this course.
I’ve been trying, but I need something to really lock it in.
I have previously tried to learn morse code and plateaued at about 2.5 words per minute. Hopefully using this method will get me past that obstacle.
I would love to learn Morse Code!
I have gotten the Tech License &would like to learn CW before getting the General License, please let me win
What a wonderful way to start 2016 off, learning the language of Morse. Happy New year to all! 73!
I’m also a new ham and would like to learn Morse. This looks like a very nice way to go.
This would be a real pleasant after-Holiday gift. Thank you for offering.
In my 70s but this old dog anxious to learn new tricks. Thank you.
I need to relearn Morse code. I barely passed my licensing requirement.
Please enter me in the contest for the free morse code training CD’s
I have no excuse now to learn Morse code again
Please enter me in the contest…
Hope I win 🙂
Would love to learn some CW.
I want to learn CW.
Gladly take any help I can get!!
I want to learn CW for SOTA.
Wow! Great giveaway! Would love to master Morse code!
Really could use the added help.. Thank you
I believe that knowing CW would be of significant importance in the years ahead.
I haven’t used CW since my novice days and I just purchased a rock might transceiver getting ready to build a complete QRP station all for CW I could sure use the disc so I’m running around delivering food at night best thing to be listening to
This is a great prize to win. I have made it a goal this year to learn Morse Code.
With a 2 letter call like mine I need to polish up my CW which I have not used in years.
Without help I am struggling to learn CW.I work at it and then it’s gone. For some reason I can’t get the difference between dit and dah. In frustration I can’t challenge the exam yet. Help, what is the secret. Grrrrr !!
Happy New Year to All.
Great newsletter and a great contest.
i have always wanted to learn cw now that i am retired i have time to study
Thanks for the chance to learn Morse Code and the teaming with the newsletter! You guys rock!!!
Always wanted to learn Morse code.
Learn d code 5wpm to get my novice ticket i 1980. I would like to kevto get back to code don’t know if I can at my age but I would like to try.
I have tried other methods to learn code but no luck.
Would love to win this to donate to my club for one of the students in our amateur radio course.
My goal for 2016 is to learn Morse Code. Love to try your method.
I really appreciate this chance, thank you!
(Sorry, I forgot my name on my first post!)
We’re just starting to learn ham radio so no callsign yet. Hopefully we’ll have them soon! Learning morse code at the same time would be fun.
Started learning CW in 1964 the WRONG WAY with flash cards. Gave up until 2014,still trying to hear more than one letter at a time. Can send SLOWLY but copying is a drag. Hope this system is the answer.
Learning CW is on the to-do list for 2016, this would be a great help!
Hello! I am brand new! I bought two ham radios and DVD s and books.
I am studying and getting licensed this year and don’t have a handle yet. I am a CERT trained
And just renewed my first aid. I brought supplies to the pioneer town fire station June 26,2015 as we had a very bad fire in
Big bear and tons of smoke in Joshua tree. This was our teams first call to respond since we graduated.
I could use some support in learning more skills.
I know it is not a prerequisite for a license but it would be nice to know morse code. Thank you
I know a 14 year old who just got his tech license and has expressed a desire to learn Morse code. This would be perfect for him
Great contest, great way to increase code.
First two lessons really peaked my interest. Seems like a very good way to get my feet wet
What a great way to learn code. Count me in as a hopeful winner 73’s
First 2 lessons really peaked my interest 73
I just don’t seem to be able to grasp code on my own, maybe this would help!
As a newer ham CW is something I definitely want to learn! Coming up on my 1 year anniversary.
So many comments!
Morse code will never die. 🙂
This seems to be a good method. Thanks for the opportunity. Learning code is one of my
Resolutions this year.
I’d love to operate CW!
What a great incentive to learn CW in 2016. Thanks for the opportunity!
I love CW – it just doesn’t love me! First licensed in 1953, it was a struggle to pass 13 wpm than, and it’s still difficult to do that speed now. Sure hope the prize will finally allow me to increase my speed.
Would be nice to learn and be proficient in another mode of communication.

Fantastic! I have been contemplating as to what source to utilize for learning Morse Code. Hopefully, I will look no further.
I want to learn code. Sounds like a great teaching program.
Sounds like a really good program of study and a nice offer to get folks up and going. Very nicely done
I would love to learn morse code and unlearn my bad habits.
I’m almost there… just need another good push to internalize all the letters and get my speed up to Novice levels. 😉
Sounds like this might help someone to learn or refresh their knowledge of the code.
I would like to try another shot at Morse code
Please select me! I need a way to learn morse code and become a “real” general.
Looks interesting. Good luck to all who enter.
Morse code is the easiest 2nd language to learn. It can be sent and received by light or sound.
Only those who learn it can understand can realize how handy it would be if everyone knew it. FB 73 de kb5eau
I’m interested in learning Morse code.
I’m an Amateur Extra but have never learned the code, other than the 5 wpm I needed to get a Tech+ license a long time ago. Alas, all is forgotten.
I am anxious to learn the code to round out my amateur experience and practice. I feel like I’m missing a dimension of amateur radio that is important.
Thanks for the chance!!!
Thank you for this!
Thanks for the chance!
If I win, I will pass it on to our club for a new to CW person…
Ive seen this program work before, and I think it will be a big help in learning the code.
Thanks for the chance to win and the contests that you sponsor.
Have been trying to learn Morse code on my own but finding it very hard. I tried the sample lessons and was impressed with the technique for learning.
Hoping to win a copy!
Happy New Year!
Ned Rubin N3SGD (ex-KN3HVH)
I would love to have a cw learning program from a real memory researcher.
Thanks for the opportunity
Awesome, sounds like a great course.
Thanks for the opportunity to win a nice prize.
Thanks for the chance.
I have been a HAM for 15 years and had to pass a 5 WPM test to get my General, but have never used the code. I would love to learn the code and enjoy using it.
Thanks for this opportunity.
I would love to learn morse it’s the dx way!
I hope to win the morse code learning disc so I can learn the code
Please enter me in the contest…
This is the last chance to learn Morse….please let me win!
Maybe that would be the way I could learn it. Looks very interesting.
Thanks for the contest. It has ben thirty years since I learned morse code and then never used it again. Now I want to get back on CW.
I have have some some other code courses but I have not very far tn to them,
I would like to try the Skilman system.
Would love to learn CW with Skilman
Been training Morse Code for decades. Looking for more effective ways.
I need to get code speed up.I would love to win this.
I would love to master Morse code someday, it’s a great skill to have.
good luck everyone !! Be a nice prize to win
As a teen on a Nova Scotian farm I loved listening to far away SW stations. Little I know there were thousands doing this and that it was called”DXing.” Fast forward to last year when as a 62 year old, huddled by a small woodstove in the worst winter in decades ( 10 storms with 450cm of snowfall) with the encouragement of Elmers I studied on my own and obtained my coveted
( are ministers alliowed to covet?) the Basic with Honours Amateur Radio License. Now, at a time when my wife believes me to be going deaf ( due to playing bagpipes) I have decided this winter to try to pass the Morse License. Call me a romantic or a throwback to the Industrial Era but somehow learning Morse appeals to me so should I end up in prison I can communicate through the walls with other prisoners. OK, perhaps I want to learn simply for the joy of low power radio communication! So, all of this to say I would love to have a set of your training materials!
Thanks for making this prize available to Canadian hams! Quincy Collins VE1 PDQ
It’s love to win a copy!
Thanks for a great contest. I’d like to learn this awesome code.
Would like to increase my speed! Thanks for the contest.
Would like to learn the code.
If I win, I’ll definitely start learning Morse Code.
I would like to enter the contest.
I would love to master Morse code
I have been looking for a way to get proficient with Morse Code this product looks interesting
I am relearning Morse Code. I originally learned it 40 years ago in the US Navy during Radio School for Naval Aircrewmen. I was a radio operator on P-3 Orion Antisubmarine Aircraft. I’m now relearning it for Summits on The Air. Great fun this Ham Radio stuff. Amazing what you can get into and thanks for the informative newsletters….very enjoyable! Steve
I wouldn’t mind learning morse code in this manner, especially since I’ve been having some real problems learning it every time I try.
I AM 74 YEARS OLD AND HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO LEARN MORSE CODE BETTER THAN WHAT I DID WHEN I RECEIVED MY LICENSE IN 1958. I HAVE BEEN STUDYING THE K6RAU CODE COURSE ON LINE. USING THE SAMPLE OF THE SKILMAN COURSE ON THIS SITE SEEMS TO BE MORE FUN AND EASIER TO LEARN. IT IS DIFFICULT FOR ME SINCE I LEARNED BY DOTS AND DASHES INSTEAD OF BY SOUND. I THINK IT IS A SHAME THAT THE CODE HAS BEEN DROPPED FROM GETTING YOUR HAM LICENSE. THE CODE IS WHAT MAKES HAM RADIO SPECIAL.
ALBERT HUTH W7KUL
Great way to start another year!
Relearn the code and work some CW.
I used to know the code at about 7 wpm, I’d be lucky to copy 2 or 3 now, is that pathetic or what? I’d like to get my speed up!
Would like to learn CW. This seems like the best way.
I’m working with the Koch method now. Wouldn’t mind getting a chance to try these out.
I have told myself that I am going to learn code this year. Let’s see what happens.
This is just what I need to learn cw. Good luck to everyone. Hope I’m a winner.
Wonderful idea. Wonderful prize. I’d like to be able to participate in next year’s Straight Key night.
Great product, would like to win to help others learn the code.
This would be great for my wife to learn cw!
I could really use this to get my CW finally up to speed…thanks!
After years of avoiding CW, this would be a great opportunity.
Count me in. I need to get back my cw skills that have been rusty for a long time. Great newsletter & thanks to the vendor!
I would love to get this and learn Morse Code.
this fits my brain learning patterns. might be my path to trying and using CW again.
I’ve been wanting to get a grasp on CW but all the training courses are either to complicated or to time consuming. This program may fit the bill and I would be a grateful HAM if I should be chosen to receive one of the free copies.
Love to learn Morse – thanks!
This is what kept me out of Amateur Radio for years. No matter I tried I could not learn the code. Then the code test was dropped and now I a ham. Still I would like to know the code.
I would love to win, and become more proficient in Morse code. A tribute to my Father who is a silent key.
Sounds like a great way too learn the CODE ! Hope too get wife interested in learning Morse Code together and on her own when not here .on her own terms..TKS for the chance !..73 and good luck too all.
I am studying to take my first test. I don’t need morse code for the test but want to learn it anyway.
Looking to learn code
Love to increase my morse code speed great offer. I do have USA address to ship too. hope I will win
Anything to improve my CW is a good thing, Tks, Joel
Trying to learn the code, this would be great to win!
I am HAM from India VU3YRN Restricted Grade just licensed . For advanced grade We need to get thro’ MORSE CODE . I have few info from old ARRL tapes on Code which I am trying but Skilman method seems to be fun and quick to teach the code. Thence I would like to get these material. Though I am from India , My son is resident of USA whose details I could furnish in the event of myself being eligible to receive the same
Passed my Tech Plus in 1993, and have not done CW since. Would love to return and become proficient in CW as a new venture in Ham Radio.
cool I need all the extra help I can and also be able to help scouts out when they wish to trty it also.
Was a novice in the late 60’s and miss CW. Can still copy some but not nearly fast enough and miss the 4 part characters a lot (L, Y, J, etc.)
This package would be great for my Club program to teach CW to members who desire to learn and use CW.
Just became a ham at 64 years old and CW always was an impossible challenge to overcome. Would love to have a professional course to help me do some CW on HF!
I think I’m to old to learn code, but I would like to try.
Great sessions. Very comfortable way to learn.
Please accept this message as the entry for the sweepstakes.
I have learning disabilities which affect learning languages and Morse code. I am hoping this method will work.
Listen to the demo would be a great way to learn
Be a great way to learn
Really want to learn CW, but it isn’t going too well.
Thanks for this – Need to re-learn
Wow need to relearn the code and get my speed up
Love to learn the code a better way then what I do now. Good luck all!
These would make a great addition to our Clubs’ Amateur Radio course study guides.
oooh! oooh! pick me! pick me!
I would love to learn Morse Code!
At 82 I’m back in the game and want to learn Morse code again.
i like the sample lessons…would like to win the whole series. -p
Need help re-learning the code! Its been too long since I first learned it in 1983 and I’m not a young as I was then!
Here’s some incentive to use the paddles!
I need to learn code to use the kits I’ve built. Thanks all.
May be after 40 years I can get it
I’m doing a number of amateurs to learn morse. This would be a welcome addition to my curriculum.
73 Fred PA1FJ
Interested in your course for a young ham…Thank you!
Very clever idea to promote the code for new/old hams 73
Pick me! Pick me!
I’ve been stuck at 15 WPM for decades. Maybe this will help?
Would love to relearn code the right way.
Please enter me. Thanks. Happy New Year.
My fingers are crossed!!!
I am looking forward to receiving a copy of the Skilman Introduction to Morse Code. Thanks.
Learning CW is on my 2016 bucket list
This is a great opportunity for Amateur Radio as a whole!, If picked to win I will use it to increase my copy speed.
listen to sample and loved it!
Count me in!
Listen to Morse code. It is a beautiful art form every ham should know. Sit back and listen. I would put Morse code in the same category as Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner, and Bach. I want to learn this art form.
Nice newsline. Enter me in CW training contest.
I would like to up my 5 word this would grate
This would give me the push to finally learn Morse Code. I’ve tried several times in the past and each time failed for one reason or another.
Actually passed 13 wpm to get General and Advanced in early 80s but then no HF at all for a few years resulted in loss of proficiency. Would be nice to get back to CW especially for QRP portable ops. I miss the old Novice bands where one could always find slow code for practice.
I recently passed my Technician’s Licensing Exam (11/15) and would like to learn how to communicate in Morse Code (CW).
Becoming proficient in CW has been on my to-do list for many years now; I’d love to make it a reality in 2016! Thank you for this opportunity!
I would love to brush up on CW!
Having just completed a Morse Code/CW class with my local Amateur Radio Club, I have gotten my sending speed and FIST back up to an acceptable quality. I’m happy to get back into CW operations, but I am still not comfortable on the air because my listening and copying is nowhere as good as my sending.
I would love to try a different method for learning to copy Morse Code, and I think this program would be just what I need!
Very nice review of the product…I have been working CW for many years but it is always nice to have a product that you can use to help others.
Great review! I’m just about to start learning CW and this would be a great tool and method to learn quickly.
I’d love to learn Morse Code. I’ve tried a couple of other programs but could never get it. Hopefully this will be the one.
Great review!! I love morse code…
Learning the code is a great way to start the new year.
I love that people are helping people learn CW and keeping the great CW tradition alive! Many Thanks!
I would love to have my CW endorsement so I can participate in QRP operation. I have tried different ways but all have failed. Hopefully this time I can succeed. Being able to take part in CW contesting and making QRP contacts would be a great thrill. Tk de Doug VE3WRF
Listening to the code on the DVD seem to jump out at you and you remember. Wow!
Happy New Year!
I always wanted to learn morse code, this win would be great!
Greetings from The Netherlands,
Cool!! Wanting to learn Morse, Thanks!!
Will donate any win to the Catholic High School radio club in Little Rock. Thanks for the contest.
It’s time to finally time to seriously learn Morse Code the right way and explore the CW world.
The best motivation for learning telegraphy is because you are interested. The desire to learn must come from your heart. The elimination of the telegraph exam for FCC issued ARS licenses was a very good move. I want to learn telegraphy.
I enjoyed the sample classes. Having the CD’s to listen in the car will be very useful and pass some time while commuting.
I’ve tried several times over the years to learn Morse code. I learned enough to pass my General exam but never used the mode on the air. Now I’m getting to old to put it off any longer..hi..hi.
I have some dyslexia problem I do have a Genger License and I did pass the more code and it was not easy for me at all. I would like to win your ten disk on the morse code and it would help me to pass the extra class I have try several time and faill it. I think this course on the morse code will help me pass it for good.
Who ever win GOOD LUCK
Sorry I did not give you my first name
sounds with checking into. I got my ticket after the no code requirement, but would like to learn to work that mode.
Would be a great addition to our Pender County ARES library. Hope to win it!
I have been a Ham for over 40 years and have not used CW in over 35 years. I would like to use your lessons to brush up on my code and start using Morse Code once aqain.
I never win anything,but what the hey I’ll try. I need to learn code and this sounds great. 73 John WOJW
Would I like to win the best way to learn CW. Affirmative.
Sounds like a good way to learn cw. I have tried other ways but no luck.
I listened to the samples and from what I heard I think this could be a very productive way to learn the code. I learned the code just enough to get my license years ago and never used it after that. This program, I think, could get me back on the path to learning and using morse code.
I want to learn Morse Code. Other methods have not worked. Would like to try this method.
I’ve been wanting to learn code for years. This could certainly help.
Started studying for the EXTRA test, might as well get a chance to get materials for learning code too.
I’ve been wanting to learn morse code but it has been one of the back burner projects needing a “roundtoit”
This is perfect! I need all the help I can get.
Always wanted to learn Morse code
This is great. One of my goals for 2016 is to learn the code to expand my exposure to amateur radio.
Wow, I just have to enter this! I have several disabilities that make this difficult for me to learn in the conventional way! Hope it is available to buy if I do not win, because I really need to give this a try.

Would be a great tool for me and my kids!
I’ve tried my hand at CW for ages. Never steady but would love the opportunity to utilize this method of communication worldwide. Thanks for the opportunity.
Count me in!
My son and I, share this passion!
I really enjoyed the sample lessons, seems like a nice program.
Tried many techniques to learn cw…..still searching for THE ONE!!!
Thanks for the chance.
i would love to see a better way to learn morse code.
I’d love to get my code speed up again
Thanks for the chance. Great giveaway, and from the free excerpts sounds like a great way to learn.
Hope I get lucky and win!
Hello from a CW guy that enjoys the hobby. Great giveaway, and from the free excerpts sounds like a great way to learn.
I’ve always wanted to learn code. I could use this.
I always wanted to learn morse code and this seems to be an excellent method to use.
I have been trying to learn code for some time now but never been able to stick with it! This would be great for my 30min drive to/from work! 73 KD8ATF
Great promotion! I’m somewhat rusty with my CW and this would be a great way to get proficient again!
I have tried learning Morse a couple of times. I have always been confounded because I have no sense of rhythm which makes it difficult to pick up on the timing involved.
this may open a new facet (for me) of HAM
Sounds interesting, worth a try.
Learned morse code 40+ years ago – long forgotten. Time to learn again
-dah .dit .dit -dah _ is 62 to old to learn ?
I’ll give it a try.
This sounds like it may be what I need to help me learn mose code with my visuall impairment. I sure hope it’s blind friendly and will work with my screen reader.
Really want to learn Morse code and operate CW, hopefully this product will get me there.
I am new to the hobby and would love to learn CW!
Just getting into amateur radio. Want to learn as much a possible as soon as possible.
big thank U & 73 from the ham community
Time to improve my code so I can have CW QSO’s on the amateur radio satellites. First learned code over 40 years ago…..talk about rusty! HI
Code will work when phone may not. Learn Morse code before it’s a lost art.
I started in amateur radio in 2011 and have always wanted to learn Morse Code to expand my ability to contact the world.
Have thought about building a QRP station with my kids and teaching them morse code. Could use your product to teach them. Thanks for the giveaway!
I’ve been trying to learn code for several months with little success using apps and computer based systems. My goal is to use CW as my main means for QSOs. I am interested in trying this system.
•–• •• -••- -•- — •! (I used an online chart…would love to learn Morse Code for real : )
I could use all the help I can get to learn code.
Thanks for the contest.
Well, I can use all the help I can!
I am interested in learning morse code.
Thank you for this opportunity. I am a fairly new ham and morse was not required for my technician’s license. I would like the opportunity to learn it so I have more communications options.
Thank you for this opportunity. As a no code ham I’ve heard that I’ve part of ruining this hobby. I’d like to make for it by learning Morse Code voluntarily.
Let the learning begin…
That would be a good new years resolution. Learn code.
Sounds interesting and helpful. Thanks.
Learning CW in 2016 is something I’m hoping to do. These lessons will help!
This will help me learn CW!
Would love to win this as well! I think that CW is getting ready to explode again with popularity!
It is like learning music. The sound corresponds to a meaning. Very interesting experience.
As new ham I would like to learn the skill to use CW, based on what I read your materials benefit me to learn the code, In years past I’ve tryed the conventional methods with not much headway. Kept me from becomng licensed until the rules changed.
This sounds interesting. I’d like to try it.
Would love to learn CW….. Studying now for my next level up.
My son and I are working towards our Extra ticket. We both know that we should learn code as well, but getting my son motivated to commit is a challenge. After listening to the two sample lessons, I am confident that this could be the way to learn. If I win, we will commit to it and complete the course to learn Morse Code.
Listened to both demo lessons an was impressed with the the way the material is presented.
this looks like the way to learn code if you don’t get up to speed just replay the disk
Good luck with product
Took a cw class. Got the basics down. Just can’t see to master it. Would be nice to win.
