One Way to Improve your Morse Code Speed

I can’t verify if this works, but you have to admire the creative thinking. AC4FS is converting the text of A Princess of Mars (one of the Edgar Rice Burroughs books about Barsoom) into Morse Code to improve his CW skills (he’s converting them using a computer program and then copying them). The first chapters start out as 25WPM characters with 12WPM spacing and every few chapters the speed increases until at the end (not finished yet) the speed will be a true 25 WPM.

You can find the files he’s completed (two speed tiers as I write this here: .

I couldn’t help but think of the old Monty Python sketch that featured Wuthering Heights in semaphore flats, Julius Ceaser by Aldis lamp, and, of course, Gunfight at the OK Corral in Morse Code.
