Feel free to use the following announcement of LCWO for your club newsletter, website, blog, etc.
A new website to learn and practice Morse telegraphy has been launched: http://lcwo.net/ - Learn CW Online There are already hundreds of training programs, MP3/CD courses and practice aids available, but LCWO follows a radically different concept: While sticking to well-proven methods for learning and practice, all you need for using LCWO is a web browser! This gives the user the liberty to practice CW wherever an internet connection is available, always retaining the personal settings, scores and statistics. Currently the site, which is available in 33 languages offers a complete Koch method Morse course, code group practice, callsign- and plain text training modes and also allows to convert random text to Morse MP3s. A high score list is available to compare results with other users, personal statistics help to track training progress. LCWO.net is a non-commercial project. Creating a free account only takes a few seconds, and you can start practicing CW right away! Fabian Kurz, DJ1YFK
Browser compatibility, technical stuff
LCWO supports all modern browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Safari) and it known to work with Edge and Opera.
Development of LCWO takes place under Debian GNU/Linux and Ubuntu, using the fantastic vim editor. The site runs on an Apache Webserver, is mostly programmed in PHP (without any frameworks, all homebrew) and uses a MySQL database. The Morse code is generated by jscwlib, the downloadable Morse MP3 and OGG files are generated by customized versions of ebook2cw which run as compiled CGIs, written in C.
LCWO is Open Source and you can find the source code at https://git.fkurz.net/dj1yfk/lcwo.
