CW practice

Bryn N4VM has generously made available hundreds of hours of W1AW code practice mp3 files that you can download and play on your mp3 player or computer.

The files are located here: http://www.pcpractice.com/CW/

They range in speed from 5 to 40 wpm. Text files showing the sent characters are also provided. They are indexed by speed: 5, 7-1/2, 10, 13, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40 wpm as well by date of transmission. There are also two directories 18 and 18 wpm - both of which contain 18 wpm Morse code practice. Below the directories of the various speeds are directories with dates. These directories (folders) are different files than the one's above and are from an earlier period where perhaps Bryn indexed the files by date instead of by speed. So if you run out of the ones indexed by speed, there are entire W1AW sessions recorded here.
We wish to thank Bryn, N4VM for the gift to the Morse community on the Internet and here on the CW email list.
Current W1AW mp3 files and text files showing what was sent are on the ARRL server here: http://www.arrl.org/w1aw/morse.html
ARRL also maintains an archive of these files - and text translations of the Morse here: http://www.arrl.org/w1aw/morse/Archive/

We thank the ARRL and their members for this excellent resource.
73 David Ring, N1EA
