> forget about a keyboard, it is really an enormous error when you need a keyboard for copying Morse code
I feel this should be stated somewhere. I've only started 13wpm training, and have been using the keyboard to type my copy. When I went to using pen and paper, my copy slowed down dramatically.
Thank you for mentioning this. I will start over.
use the keyboard if you can already touch type
you need to avoid learning JUST a link between the morse character and the key-press
you will get through all the lessons
then have to use the keyboard for (quite) some time until you practice enough to "hear" the letter etc in your mind when you hear the morse in your ear.
