Introducing "MorsePower" . a blog about Morse Code & CWCOM - Morse over the internet !.

Welcome...


Introducing "MorsePower" .

a blog about CWCOM - Morse over the internet !.


to contact me....

CWCOM  is a program that enables you to send morse code, over the internet, and conduct "live" real-time QSO`s (contacts)  You can use a straight morse key, a single or twin paddle key...or bug key... if you do not have a key.. you can use the down arrow as a straight key, or the mouse as an iambic key using the right and left buttons.



 It is an excellent program for those Radio Amateurs, who, because of local housing restrictions on antenna`s, cannot use the radio for their hobby, to practice and enjoy communicating in Morse.

      When Morse Code was first used, the operators used simple morse keys, like an on/off switch to send a current down a telegraph line, to a distant station.  The series of on/off connections was governed by the Morse Code, invented by Samuel Morse, and his friend.  It was primarily used between large towns and cities, and invariably by the railways of the time, to pass messages. As the system grew, and spread, around the various countries, it became the original internet. And so, with CWCOM we have come full circle, so to speak, as we can now use the modern version of the internet, to communicate around the world, using Morse Code.

        To this end, I have written a series of tutorials, about the setting up and configuration of the program, although there is an excellent "help" page embedded in the program for quick reference.

(written for Windows 95.. but also can be used on Linux and MAC machines)

Check out

PAGE 15 FOR LINUX

   PAGE 16 FOR MAC USERS
on this blog for FULL DETAILED instructions.


To download... CWCOM..


scroll down the page a little,  to a small window on the right hand side.

click on    Windows Executable 2 files

choose/select       

IMPORTANT NOTE......

after installing... check the "Remote Details"       "Address"  box


Make sure you have the correct "Remote Details" 
  in the   "Address" box .

it should read....

[morsecode.dyndns.org]

If it shows
[mrx.ham-radio-op.net]

you can edit that to the correct address by typing in the correct address.


To check this.... after install.... click the desktop icon, to "open" cwcom

then click the "blue world" icon next to the black square top left of screen

this is the "Connect" window..

This is what you should see 
(your ip address will be in the  ip address line )

It will also be in the "callsign" box at the bottom. which you can add your callsign into,
instead of the ip address.

Please click on the PAGES MENU at the top of the screen for more specific information about all aspects of cwcom,   including how to connect an external key to your computer or laptop
If you have any problems. you can contact me on the email address at the top of this page....

I also run another blog that tells the stories about my 16 straight morse keys, that I have attached to my laptop.. and use a different one each day in rotation
