Morse Code Videos

US Navy morse training film – 1944

This film teaches the American style of sending, with the elbow on the desk and a lightweight key. This is how I learned to send morse, but it is not everyone’s favourite method. In the British style, a much more substantial key is mounted at the front edge of the desk. I now use both styles just for variety.
