Hello Guys. I have quite a dumby idea of making a device, which is connected with the Internet, with button and speaker. The aim of it to communicate with your gf/family/friend/smbd else. Does anybody know if I can take some ready projects? Arduino for example.
I'm sorry, if this is not the place for such questions or the idea is shitty
Also, I'd like to appologize if there are too many mistakes

Google MorseKob. I tried it only once ages ago. It may be deadware now.

Seems like a good question to me. Here's a product which may do what you are looking for:


I have not used it, though.

He is looking for something over the Internet. It's all very experimental and/or deadware.

Thanks. Now I understand.


has users doing QSOs. I haven't purchased the dongle to use my paddle, so I don't have firsthand experience.

May I ask:

1) Why does it have to be over the Internet? Is that because you don't have or want a licence or is it a matter of privacy?

2) Why not over radio? I don't know how it works in Russia but in Europe we have PMR446 which allows licence-free radio communication for personal use. You could hook a key to a super cheap Baofeng and do MCW (Modulated continuous wave) over two walkie talkies. But in this case you would have no privacy.

EDIT: This one in case your family/friends are quite near you.

Some local ham groups do Morse via Skype.

Vband is not private and quite frankly is as good as a toy.
