Maybe a dumb question but I seem to mentally link the tones to a keyboard position not a letter. Should i write down letters and then enter? Or once I get to more letters will I be forced to recognize as letters not positions on the keyboard?
This is not a dumb question but a potentially very real issue.
If you are going to become ( eg.) a professional military operator, dealing in receiving and typing out coded messages, then you want to associate morse to keyboard
because you will need to transcribe with 100% accuracy, else the message will be undecodable beyond the first mistake, and you will always be working at a keyboard.
If on the other hand you aren't working wih coded messages, eg. you are a radio ham, then you probably want to be able to decode straight to meaning in your head
rather than having to type everything every time then read it back . .
. . in which case make sure you can decode to letters not straight to keys by trying writing out first then checking how you did.
If you become keyboard bound then you will probably have to spend more time learning again - which is probably not what you want to happen . .
good luck . .
let us know how you get on . .
