Ok, good advice. 'Overstressing' is right
. . it is if you are testing a bridge.
If on the other hand you are at lesson 11 in learning morse
you haven't reached 25wpm in two weeks
means you probably don't have a very high aptitude
are more like the rest of us
you should be going for repetition repetition repetition
a speed which keeps you busy but doesn't make you tired.
When you have learned all the characters and are busy tapping/listening away, enjoying yourself
telling people about your new aerial etc, you will find yourself getting faster anyway as a matter of course ( and excitement ( and maybe natural competitiveness ) )
MAKE SURE you get that far instead of getting bored and giving up, like some probably large percentage of hopefull starters do
hints YMMV FWIW
Try a variety of audio frequencies to check your ear response, just in case that is an issue.
Don't bother too much about testing yourself all the time.
By a cheap mp3 player and listen to lots of morse instead of watching silly TV programmes.
I think someone in another topic is transcribing the bible, which should keep you busy for a bit.
repeat repeat repeat
- must remember to keep it enjoyable whilst still being challenging.
Accuracy first, speed second, did you read pierpont ???
