The American Radio Relay League's "Your Introduction to Morse code" is an introductoin of two CDs and booklet that teaches Morse code at five words per minute in addition to the unique language and protocols of amateur radio communications. Historically, the five words per minute comprehension was a standard in the Federal Communication Commission's test to move up in the amateur radio licensing ranks but since the publication of this CD set, the Morse code requirement ended in 2007. The instructional CD uses a rote memory approach of teaching the code via repetition and association that is reinforced with spelling out words and sentences. According to the enclosed booklet, the code is sent using the Farnsworth technique sending the code at speed with extra space added between characters to slow the overall speed.
Those of you to have done the research into learning Morse have read the arguments about the Koch and Farnsworth methods of assimilating the code and from my personal experience; the only method that really works is consistency and perseverance, moreso when there is no requirement to learn the code. Of all advice and opinion offered to as short cut to learn the code, the only consistent information is set aside ten to fifteen minutes every day and try not over think the dits and dahs. I have been listening to the instructional CD for about a week and already half the alphabet comes naturally to me in addition to some punctuation and prosigns.
In short, the CDs the simplest and straightforward approach to learning Morse code. From production to packaging, the simplicity is apparent nonetheless you will get result so long as you stick to it. I would also recommend to the serious learner that they try to get their hands on a copy of Morse Code - The Essential Language written by another member the ARRL almost twenty years ago. Its an elaborate introduction the history and usage of Morse Code with more information about learning techniques and communication protocols.
