Subject: RE: researching telegraph
I really appreciate the detailed response that you made on the forum concerning tapping a line, power for the key, etc. I am certain that Major Benoit does also. John Schultz's contribution was also a great response and I will thank him here also for his response. As stated, he was a CW opr with the U.S.Navy. I had a friend who along with my brother Don , served about five years in the South Pacific on the rolling deck of a destroyer copying CW and typing out the msgs during WWII.
It was really nice to get the information in such detail and this will be very helpful to me as I am researching the USMT and will eventually do a little presentation on it for our CW Round Table locally.
Although I have not made a real serious effort, I have tried copying the mail on the Morsekob site and have difficulty trying to learn the American Code by sounder. I have learned the Intl. code and worked stations on CW over the years at slow speed, but listening to a sounder, even with the tone turned on over it is still difficult for me to learn it. Especially with the several different letters in American or RR Morse.
In any event, I truly enjoyed reading your detailed response and that of John Schultz also. Thank you again and,
