Thread: Koch character sequence

Back to the Forum

After talking with some experienced cw operators I am interested to know why your Koch sequence has "=" (-...-) in it? It isn't really a "=" character but a "long break ".

It seems strange that this is included so early in the learning sequence.

The sequence on http://codepractice.com/learning.html seems to be a more commonly used Koch learning sequence.

"-...-" is usually used much like a fullstop or a comma, not in the meaning of "equals", but it is commonly written as "=".

There are indeed a few different variations of the character sequence in the Koch method courses around. To be honest, I never researched the original source to make sure the one LCWO uses is the "correct" one. But then again, in my opinion, small changes in the learning sequence won't really make a difference in learning speed and progress.

OK, it's not a big problem. Yes, I realise it's used as a message separator rather than in it's mathematical sense.
