While Morse code is not required to get your license, it is a popular mode and a lot of fun!

You can learn a bit about the history of Morse Code, the development of the telegraph and its impact on communication. (thanks to Payton Conway for this link to a great site!)

You can find a lot of study aids online or you can purchase a system.  There are apps aplenty, but there is no one fool proof way to learn "the code"  And you must committ to whatever you choose.

The ARRL maintains an code practice schedule  - it changes occaisionally so we have provided a link below

hey also offer some code practice files to listen to
