    Is there a chart for decoding the code chart first?

    LOL, I've been CW only since 1966 and still took me about 2 minutes to figure it out so I figure I'm still in the QRS category.

    That is amazing. So simple. I will be printing this and putting it in with my gear.
    It really works.

    I'm a no code ham, but SOS I do know. Using that, it made sense pretty quick to me.

    I need to use this to learn the rest. Thanks.

    That is a clever little thing for sure.

    I would tell you the easy way to learn code, but I never learned how to use it...

    I managed to sustain 5 WPM to get my novice in the early 60s. But never got on the air. No radio.
    I have managed a few WPM a couple of times since but gave up.

    When I first saw it I thought it was a hydraulic flow schematic for switching over to a ship's emergency steering system.

    Ok as a HAM and had to pass 13WPM for my general a few years back, I understand and recognize letters in the chart now, but if I didn't know something already, this chart would be useless.

    It really wasn't hard to figure out, was it?
    But pretty handy, indeed.

    I have never learned Morse beyond SOS, so I was very confused. Once I realized I should start where it says "START HERE" (reading is fundamental), and applied SOS, it popped right out. Neat.

    I mark my gear with my initials in Morse. I hope in case of theft it will not get marked out.
    Thieves might not recognize it as I.D.

    Learned morse 3 yrs back, started with charts similair to that one, but quickly realized that they messed up the brain. Might work if you read it or receiving very slow, but your mind will always need to work through those charts to get to the wanted character. Slow and inefficient. Had to put it aside for a couple of months to clear the mind (beer helps), and then went straight into 20WPM receiving using the koch method, which did the trick.
