          • General Telegraphy

            There are many like me that hold an Amateur Extra with 20 WPM code and a Radio Telephone license. The obtain the Radio Telegraphy license, we only need element 6 and a place to take the exam. Element 6 question pool would be nice.

            • Toggling horizontal/vertical alignment

              The Ham Morse screen remains vertical aligned when the iPad is turned horizontal. Did I overlook something?

              • Newspaper Headlines

                I am going on about 5 months now and copying pretty good at 10 wpm. I really like the changing text in the newspaper headlines, but lately they are all gone but the British ones. What can we as customers do to help you get back the other newspaper headlines?

                    Hi there,

                    Sorry to hear you are having problems with the app. Can you remember or tell me which News feed you were trying to listen to when it crashed? Will it work if you change to a different setting, e.g. words, QSO, etc. or does it continue to have problems? If its continuing to have problems I would delete the app from the phone and reinstall and see if that improves matters. Any additional information about your phone (e.g. version of iOS) plus if it works if you delete the app, etc. will be very useful for me to debug the problem.

                    Cheers, Simon, AA9PW.

                    • Excellent morse code practice!

                      The system you're using is very helpful -- thanks for helping me get my morse code skills back!

                        • Resize letters bigger and add carriage returns so letters don't run together (a lot of this looks alike!)

                          Hello,

                          I have been trying 5 "groups" of code in
                          practicing Morse code on your website.

                          I've been losing my spot and thinking I had
                          a lot more letters wrong than I actually did.

                          I was thinking of copying and pasting the (correct)
                          letters into a word processing document and
                          resizing the letters and adding carriage returns.

                          Then I thought: maybe I can ask you to do that automatically
                          on your website?

                          It's just a suggestion but it may help myself and others

                          Thanks for your consideration.

                          73
                          Kim, N9UBJ

                          • The morse code for the letter "U" is slightly mispelled

                            http://aa9pw.com/morsecode/morse_code_alphabet/
                            the "U" is given as "di-dit-dah" when the rest of the letters would imply that "di-di-dah" was intended.
                            Love this site, found it many months back, only now am beginning to learn morse code.

                                Some of the links don't seem to work. It could be my end. It displays a 404 error. Do I need to up date my system? Win7 64 bit. Latest updates. Could it be my antivirus? Thanks

                                    • AA9PW. A question regarding your testing.

                                      sir. Sir I am not a ham but my Ham buddy is writing this for me.
                                      I have been taking your test now for about two months. I run thru it every evening and my friend gives me the test. I have been getting 100% every time I take the test. My problem is when I went into the Local Amature radio Club to take my test. I could not make heads or tails out of the questions as they were completely different than your material and he said your material was out dated and we are using a new…

                                        Hi Ralph, All of the question pools on the site are the current editions (Technician is valid through 6/18, General is valid through 6/19 and the Extra is valid through 6/20). If you can give me more information about which exam you are taking and which book they are using to study from then perhaps we can get to the bottom of it.

                                        Cheers, Simon, AA9PW

                                      • Excellent site to improve CW speed

                                        Very much like the ability to set character and word speed separately.
                                        I get to know characters by sound / rhythm rather than by counting dits and dahs.

                                        • Would like to be able to hear call signs twice before hearing the next call.

                                          Still one of the easiest apps to get my speed back!
