Morse Code – From a SmartPhone App?

W0w, I just came across http://buzzbuka.dsemeas.com/Buzzbuka.html which looks like its a pretty cool SmartPhone app for iPhone, Droid, or iPads.

It looks like you can communicate in either Morse Code or with a different type of code that is not Morse.  Using your volume key buttons for dashes and dots, you can pound out a message to your friend in Morse Code.

But – that doesn’t solve the problem!  You need to LEARN Morse code before you start using it in conversations with your friends.

Still, this app might be a great way to hone your skills and give you motivation to learn Morse Code – because if you don’t know the Code, how will you send it to your friends?

You won’t.

So, for $0.99 cents, why not?  Give it a try.  You’ll be sending and receiving Morse Code before you know it, and eventually may love it so much you decide to get your Ham Radio license!

    Actually, I’m pretty sure that I was told that you don’t need to know Morse code for the entry level HAM license anymore.
