If a Nine-Year-Old Girl Can Do It….

….shouldn’t all of you?

Thanks to Jim, W8JPM, for sending me a link to this YouTube video of RZ9UMA working the recent WPX CW contest:

More Morse
And, while we’re on the subject of Morse Code, here’s another video that I found while surfing around YouTube. It’s a video of how to use a simple microcontroller to decode Morse Code. I will grant that since the input to the microcontroller in this example is a pushbutton switch, the practicality of this example is somewhat limited, but it should get you started on making your own Morse decoder, if you’d like to give it a try.


  1. Hello,

    I worked Katia today on 20m !

    We talked on CW and I can confirm that she was able to communicate using the paddle outside the contest at 20wpm with very good performance for 15 minutes (my speed was about 25wpm). It was very enjoyable to talk with Katia in her fresh 9yrs ages (birthday in May10) and demonstrate her CW skills and even good english !

    Good luck to Katia and big congrats,
