I am a great believer in the benefits of using Morse Code though I never found it an easy mode to use. It was even harder after I had been off the air for a number of years allowing what proficiency I ever had was to get rusty with lack of use. So I wrote MorseGen to give me some practice.
MorseGen is a program that can generate Morse Code for practice purposes at whatever speed you feel comfortable reading. It can be used to teach yourself Morse using the Koch Method starting with random letter or number groups, common words, text from a file or pseudo-QSOs. If you are starting to learn Morse from scratch then you might be better off starting with Morse Machine.
MorseGen can also generate audio practise files which can be played on a CD player or MP3 player.
- PC running Windows 95, 98, Me, 2000, XP, Vista or Windows 7.
- Sound card configured as default wave output device.
- Lame Encoder (only to generate MP3 files.)
MorseGen will also run under Linux using wine.

Version 2.0 is the final version. Read my blog post about it. The option to send text from a file is broken in this version. Unfortunately I no longer have the means to fix it.
Trojan warning! Some third rate virus scanners claim the installer used by my programs is a virus or a trojan. It is not a trojan it is a false alarm. If you choose to believe your scanner rather than me that is up to you. But please don't tell me about it, because I already know. See this blog post for more information.
If you wish to provide a link to this program from your own web pages please link to this page, not directly to the download file.
