It's a paper tape recorder. In the early days, Morse thought it better to print the dots and dashes, and then read them out.I never learned the land-line version of the code, but I'm pretty good at CW on the Ham bands!
I was listening last night and heard some interesting stuff: two guys literally having a conversation, it was so fast. If it weren't for the slight change in tone, you would not be aware of the switch.a ham with a poorly-tuned transmitter. Every time he pressed the key his frequency changed: "blooooop!"a ham with an odd "fist": long, long pauses between words, very short pauses between letters and almost no pauses between dots and dashes.
Sweet....didn't know you were a Ham.I remember you could *always* tell a Cuban station because they all had the same chirp when they keyed up. Bad power grid, I guess.
