When I was a scout we had to send and receive so many words my wig wag, semi fore or standard morse code I think it was for second class but may have been for first.

Yes, but that's only because the written language hadn't been invented yet :lol:

Maybe they will change the requirements for the Signaling to:
Send a text message of 35 words in a minute and Send an email of at least 35 words in a minute. And no words can be completely spelled out correctly.

Being a Ham radio operator teaching Morse code is as easy as listening to a CD! I can teach a 1/4 of the alphabet in ten minuets to any Scout. There is an easy way for you to teach the code even if you don't know yourself. Buy Gordon West's "Morse Code 0-5 Teacher" two Audio CD set. You can do a web search for the W5YI group; they publish and record Gordon's teaching material.

By the way Morse Code faster by far than texting, in the order of three times faster.

Thanks! My boys have been working on this for quite awhile now, and still haven't mastered it. I'll get the CDs.
