Learn Morse Code on Ubuntu

  • 1
I recently became a scout assistant-leader. As you do. One of their activities is the use of morse code.

Enter aldo. A morse code learning tool released under GPL. It plays morse code and you have to identify/translate it. It has the Koch method which starts at 2 charters then once mastered it moves on to 3 charters. Then 4 and so on. Classic method, random characters, is also available.

Aldo is listed under package name aldo. Install with: sudo apt-get install aldo. Run it in a terminal by entering aldo. Simple really. Its better to run it on xterm or one of its variants.

To translate code I use the chart on www.learnmorsecode.com.
See www.nongnu.org/aldo for other aldo download sources.
