Seeing the message expressed in Dots and Dashes is difficult.
BUT if you replace each dot with a DIT sound and each dash with a DAH sound, you’ll hear the rhythm of the DITS and DAHS in your mind and should almost instantly KNOW the letter.
Students need to focus on the rhythms, and TRY to avoid thinking or visualizing code in terms of DOTS and DASHES. DOTS and DASHES can’t be heard on your radio, only DITS and DAHS can. Layne’s message will be much easier if you attempt to “hear” the sound and not the visual image.
Any suggestions or feedback is welcome as students are in the best position to recognize class shortcomings, which can benefit future classes.
That said, Congratulations to all who took the class and much success on the air. Feel free to join in the SLOW CW net.
Oh, one last thing: “Practice, Practice, Practice”
