Morse Code - About DITS and DAHS
In recent months, MAARC has been conducting a series of training sessions for those interested in gaining skill in Morse code sending and receiving.
Regular instruction has been key to the program conducted by Marcel LeBlanc, VE9ML. Once the basics have been learned, proficiency
and speed can be gained by three accepted methods; practice, practice and practice!
Although Morse code is no longer used in commercial telecom systems, it is still a popular mode in Amateur Radio. Making frequent on-air contacts on CW is acknowledged as the best way to gain proficiency.
There are many Websites related to Morse code. Below is a very short list of Websites related to learning and practice together with some historical background.
To broaden the scope of this page and reflect Morse as used in landline, these sites on this subject are included.
