Morse Code Frequently Asked Questions

Can you tell me what [insert some text or sound file here] means?
No, sorry. I don't know Morse code. You might like to try the transcriber to see if it can understand your sound file though.
Can I see the source code?
I am slowly putting various pieces of source code onto Github.
How can I save the sound files on my computer to play again later?
I do have plans for a proper download option but for now, with the translator you can save the sound to a file in a round-about way:
  1. Download Audacity - a free sound file editor.
  2. Run Audacity.
  3. In Audacity, select "Wave Out Mix" in the drop-down input source selection box.
  4. In the Morse translator, enter the text or Morse.
  5. In Audacity, press the record button.
  6. In the Morse translator, press "Play".
Audacity will then record the sound coming out of the computer. Press the stop button in Audacity when the Morse has finished. You can then edit the sound and save it in a variety of formats.
How long have you been interested in ham radio?
Don't take this the wrong way, but I have no particular interest in ham radio as such and I do not even know Morse code myself! I am happy to provide useful tool to others though as I find the technologies behind the tools interesting to learn and experiment with.
I love your web site and all this morse code stuff. Can I give you lots of money?
