Morse Classic

Morse Classic is a Morse code training program for aspiring radio hams. It can generate random tests or simulated QSOs resembling those used in the ARRL test (a QSO generator is included). There are a plethora of options for varying the training method. In one of the simpler modes, this program will take text from standard input and render it as Morse code beeps.

        Release Notes: The -A, -B, and -S options were fixed, since -B was always active, and -A and -S had no effect. Prosigns are only included if -B is specified, per the documentation. The "@" character (.--.-.) was added, and is in use if -B is enabled. The representation of the prosign was changed from "@" to "~" to accommodate "@". The program no longer crashes if a char is signed and a negative value is sent.

            It's an excellent way to learn morse. There are plenty of fancy GUI programs out there, but none of them are as flexible as this command line program. I've gone from raw beginner to copying 12 WPM in 3 weeks just occasionally spending half an hour with this program, and had fun as well.
