Learn Morse Code Online

We try to share educational opportunities when they come our way. Here’s an interesting one for youth and adults alike who are interested in learning Morse Code. This was sent to our club Secretary:

If there is an interest in learning Morse code – I’m emailing you to encourage your students (and if interested, YOU) to sign up for CW Academy. Over 5000 students have participated in CWA since 2015, and we have a youth-oriented program that groups young people with other students their own age. Quite a number of young (some as young as 9 years old) CW operators, both contesters and rag chewers, have graduated from youth CWA. Classes are held on-line (using SKYPE or Zoom), and we have students from all over the world participating.

Students with no prior Morse experience start at the “Beginners” level, but there are three higher levels for those who have some knowledge of Morse. More information can be found here: https://cwops.org/cw-academy/cw-academy-options/

Registration is easy – go to https://cwops.org/cw-academy/cw-academy-student-sign-up/ and sign up! Make sure youth indicate that they are under 20 and their age in the appropriate boxes.

If you have any questions, etc, please feel free to reach out to me at this email address. I look forward to a large number of youth participants next semester!

PS. BTW, kids love Morse code, and it enhances their enjoyment of Amateur Radio. It’s another aspect of the hobby that I love introducing people to. And if you are participating in SCR this week, and HAVE FUN!!!
