Some years ago I came across a ''Morse chat-room'' on the WEB and it worked quite well. So I wonder if there are any Techies out there who might consider one for SN., perhaps its been thought of before. Lots of old Brass pounders and Side Swipers in the Attics around the World., bring them back to life. So Thats my Thought for the day. Would welcome your comments., 73's

Great stuff, Sparkie. If a bit slow.
Now I need to be able to record that and post the sound file as an attachment to an email or embedded into a thread. Any ideas.

Hi, Sparkie2182 thanks for the comments, Very much appreciated. I would prefer to plug a Key into the Old Computer and have two way QSO's on SN if possible, instead of this typing thing Hi, same as Ham Radio and the old days at sea ,Company skeds etc.,etc., Lets keep the little bit of Mystery.

Great stuff, Sparkie. If a bit slow.
There is a drop down box at the top where you can increase the speed to 35wpm. 20 was comfortable any higher I couldnt write fast enough:sweat:

Tried that, Hugh, I tried 25s but gave up at the first dash.
That's the second link posted.
The one I was referring to was the first which is limited to 18wpm. A lot easier and seemed a lot slower than the second one at the same speed.
Definitely out of practice.[=P]

Have you tried MorseMail at all? The server is down just at the moment; I have advised the programme's creator.

A pop between letters and a squeak between words.

Tks Kris & Rap, took me right back hearing the different fists and tones of coast stations - great stuff!

MorseMail is back on line again. Any of you had a look at it yet.
(Like the new pin-up by the way, MarconiSahib!)
17th August 2007, 19:41
The link for MorseMail is this (http://brasspounder.com:8873/).
You missed out a couple of slashes Brian.
The new pin-up is temporary until I can sort out the radar at the new size or find another Marconi related one.
This one makes me feel SOOOoooooo old.[=P]

But you might have been there already.

I found the morse a little scratchy and hard to read.
The program I use is
Which I find I can still read at 25wpm.
I also make ring tones and download them to my mobile telephone. It is quite interesting when the phone rings in public and the ring tone identifies the caller in morse.

I used WinMorse to create a ring tone for my mobile phone. The speed can be chosen at will.

I also have custom ones for calls from my wife and my kids.
