CW rhythm words


Due to the inherent rhythm in Morse Code, some stuff is just fun to hear. If you swing your Bug a bit or don't have the most perfect 3:1 DAH-DIT element timing it can sound even more interesting.

The old timers all know this stuff but for those of us new(ish) to CW there are still these little gems we keep finding... like how sending the words BENS BEST BENT WIRE sound in CW when they are all crammed together .

If you've never played around with rhythmic sounding words during your off-air practice just give it a whirl.  If you do it on a bug with a bit of liberal timing it can be even more fun.

So play around with it and if you have other interesting sounding texts in CW please comment or email them to me.

That's all for now...

So lower your power and raise your expectations

  1. Richard.....great article. I’m old school, with a straight key or sideswiper, and I have been told that I have a “musical” fist. (I do play piano, btw). Patterns in speech do translate well into code. It is even possible to accentuate a letter or syllable with a mechanical key through pacing and timing. Love it. De N6XJP, Dave
