Super Morse is the original comprehensive Morse Code training program for the PC. Super Morse permits the user to learn the Morse characters in a very orderly way using several different methods, including one unique to Super Morse; build speed with special exercises; enhance existing operating skills with even advanced exercises; measure progress with a testing feature; and even operate via radio or telephone modem. Super Morse permits the user to change speeds and other parameters on the fly, use standard spacing or Farnsworth methods, and insert interference to simulate an actual radio contact.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is Super Morse available for Windows?
No. Super Morse is a DOS program, but it will usually run under Windows as a DOS application using the SM.PIF file and the loop timing method. In Windows 95 you will need to restart Windows in the DOS mode. Running in a DOS window or running from the DOS prompt may not work.
2. Is there a version of Super Morse for the Macintosh?
No. However, some users have reported that they are able to run Super Morse on the Macintosh with an emulator, although that will not work with versions 3.10 through 3.16 due to the timing method used. I have no plans to port Super Morse to other machines.
3. Can I send the code sounds through a sound card?
Yes, you can use the Sound Blaster card if you have the right version. Versions through 3.16 do not support the Sound Blaster card, but 4.01 and later do. Super Morse is unable to use the Sound Blaster when running in Windows if the Sound Blaster is set up as the Windows sound output device.
4. Where can I obtain the latest version of Super Morse?
Obviously you can download it from this Web page. The latest version of Super Morse is also always available on Compuserve HAMNET or at the Internet ftp sites ftp://qrz.com and ftp://ucsd.edu.
5. Do you have any circuits for interfacing Super Morse to my radio?
No, I have no circuits other than those shown in the DOC file.
6. Why can’t I just send you some money and have you send me a copy of Super Morse?
Publishing Super Morse is a hobby, and I have chosen not to make a business out of it. Therefore, I do not take orders.
7. Do you accept credit cards for the contribution?
No, but you can make a contribution via Compuserve by entering GO SWREG and selecting program number 649.
8. Is there a printed manual?
No. The “manual” is distributed in QUICK.DOC and ADVANCE.DOC which are ASCII files with page numbers and table of contents that can be easily printed on your printer.
9. Do you notify users of updates?
No. Unlike many other authors, I do not notify contributors when a new version is released–I just do not have the time. Watch this Web page.
10. What is your shareware fee?
I do not have a shareware fee per se. However, I do accept contributions to support development of the program. I suggest a donation of $20. Please do not send non-U. S. currency due to the high cost of currency exchange in Iowa. Instead send a postal money order denominated in Dollars.
