Learn Morse Code On Your Mac

Black Cat Systems has updated their Morse Code tutor applicatoin, Morse Mania, to version 1.9.1. Morse Mania helps teach users to compose and interpret Morse signals, and the new version fixes a character generation related bug. According to Black Cat Systems:

Black Cat Systems announces that Morse Mania version 1.9.1 has been released and is now available. This version fixes a bug which could cause a longer space after the first dot of a character.

Morse Mania is a morse code tutor for the Macintosh. The software package helps you learn morse code at speeds ranging from 5 to 30 words per minute. Morse Mania is ideal for amateur (ham) radio operators who desire to learn or improve their morse code proficiency, especially in order to upgrade their license class.

In addition to drills to help learn the various characters, Morse Mania also allows complete text files to be sent, so that "real life" messages can be used for practice.

It also supports the Farnsworth mode, which increases the speed of the dots and dashes, and lengthens the pause between letters sent, allowing the student to learn morse code at higher speeds more easily.

Morse Mania is shareware. An uncrippled, fully functional copy of Morse Mania may be downloaded from the Morse Mania web site.

Black Cat Systems creates and distributes Macintosh software, with a specific emphasis on programs for the scientific, amateur radio, and health markets.

Morse Mania is available for US$20. You can find more information at the Black Cat Systems web site.
