ďKeeping the sound of Morse aliveĒ
M O R S E K
MorseKOB is a program I developed for doing landline telegraphy and American
Morse with the help of a computer. Iíve used it both as a practice tool
while learning the code and as a way of communicating in Morse with experienced
operators over the Internet. While using the program Iíve met some great
people on ďthe wireĒ.
For more information on Morse telegraphy, visit the Morse
Telegraph Clubís website.
There are two versions of the program to choose from. Here are brief
descriptions to help you decide which is best for you.
- MorseKOB 2.5
- This is the stable version of the KOB program. Completely unchanged since
February 2009, itís still the preferred choice for most users. A tutorial
and FAQ are available for this version.
- MorseKOB 3.0
- This version runs on Mac OS and Linux, in addition to Windows. Itís the
obvious choice for Mac and Linux users, but it can be tricky getting it to
work with an external key and sounder. MorseKOB 3.0 launches directly in a
web page. Click on the Help link in the
lower left part of that web page for information on how to use the program.
