Thread: CW over Internet

Back to the Forum

Hi, I really like CW but I don't have time now to put an HF station together. Is there some interface and software that will allow me to use my favourite Bencher to have QSO's over the internet???

I would like to see this to get some more use http://myspace.voo.be/pcoupard/cwirc/ alas, not enough clients or interest nowadays.

Scroll down the page to "useful links", and you'll find CWCom for Windows.

And then there is, of course, HamSphere's CW mode http://www.hamsphere.com/read.php?19,1333,1333

I've only really used the CW Irc, and mostly in receive mode still.

look for "cwcom"!
That is a cw chat program. You connect your key to the serial port (or via serialadapter) or use the mouse (bad) or cursor-down key to send. You will usually find others for a qso there. Its really great fun an very good practice, at least for sending!

There's a CWIrc channel #cw at irc.freenode.net, which also seems to relay cwcom and morsemail. CWIrc's a plug-in for x-chat irc client, and can send morse from external key, paddle, or from mouse. Some QRM & propagation simulation is available too.

Have a look at CQ100 http://www.qsonet.com/
You get a 90 day free trial if you are licenced. It costs after that but is good if you do not have access to a radio. I have never found a Skype version.

Any one know how to use LCWO on Iphone or Android? I cannot log in to the main page. Understand there are ways to download the individual MP3 files. Also ARRL lets us download their code practice sessions. Any tips or ideas? Is there an App for that?

I have been told that LCWO works fine on the iPhone/iPad; in that case you need to set the CW player to "HTML 5" in the CW parameter settings. I have also seen it working well on a HTC with Windows Phone, but I have no idea about Android.

If you cannot log in with your iPhone, it may be blocking cookies from LCWO.net? The browser needs to accept a temporary session cookie in order to log in.

Yes, Fabian,

Confirming it works on Ipad2, just tested.

Rechecked that browser accepts cookies. The sign-in page appears just as in the Full sized (laptop) versions but after log-in does not proceed to my user page. This is true of both android standard browser and Opera browser, but not true of laptop. Can anyone with Android confirm?

Works on Archos 101 tablet (Andriod) too, both with standard and dolphin browser.
Not very convenient for interactive use though: mp3 applets have to be started by hand (could be a setting) and the virtual keyboard with letters and numbers on different tabs are a real challange for real time input.
Creating mp3's works great though.

None of the players work on my old Android phone, but as it's only running Android 1.6 I'm not that surprised...

For cw qso over internet have a look at https://sites.google.com/site/icwoip/

I can recommend the last post for all CW lovers with the above note concerining iCW, which is operated over a Mumble server. More infos and installation tips can be found here at these two sources which are of rich of valuable hints:

Internet CW -> http://internetcw.weebly.com/

ICWOIP -> https://sites.google.com/site/icwoip/

BTW: The Mumble server is operated by Chuck, W5UXH

Have fun!

A great way for all that want to try some qsos and dont have the equipment is still

Beginners and pros can have practice there with beginners and pros, easy to touch a key or to use the keyboard, diifferent channels to improve ones skills with topnews at different speeds or to organize a meeting with friends as well as the common channel 1000 with advanced helping hams.

Comparing cwcom es iCw i realy need to say that CWCOM is the much easier solution without needing any extra programs like "fldigi" nor a server like "mummble" or a second digital soundcard.
All you need is to download CWCOM from http://www.mrx.com.au/ then to run the exefile and start the program and to connect your key(paddle or straight) via serial port or usb.

It could be the simpliest solution for all newbies trying to have real qso via internet.

Furthermore there are some blogs explaining nicely how to set up a qrzlist there or how to edit the morse library

Sounds like a great feature that could be added to this site?
