New Morsorino-32 on the block

Happy to share that a new morsorino-32 is alive and kicking in ON-land. :-)

Building the kit took me an hour, helped by the very good and reassuring manual. I didn't experience difficulties despite my declining sight and my last kit building experience being a  couple of years old.

After some clicking around, I tried the echo mode. And particularly the call echo mode (what I was most eager to use to increase my speed and precision). It meets all my expectations. (But I realize it is more a memory exercice than a CW one). Great work and thank you to all that made this project happen.

And now RTFM ;-)

Re: Cw generator

It#s hard to tell without further information and without knowing what all the parameter settings are...
I suggest you walk through all parameters one by one, with the manual at hand, and verify that the chosen setting is actually what you want it to be...

I found the same issue on my side and can reproduce it. Maybe a problem in 'snapshot 4' and '5'?

Hi Willi and All
 QUESTION for You all ,a month or so back ,I updated to firmware 3.1 for straight key 
Down loaded a file for practice, and viewed the videos from the cw school ,the German,English videos, and made some recommended settings,
 My Morserino works well in echo mode,and Koch ,but out of echo mode cw generator and words and etc ,I get the opening v,s etc but then no content , any ideas they all used to work so perhaps it is a setting ?

Re: Patch Release 3.0.2

Hi Willy,

Basically you need to follow the instructions in Appendix 4 of the manual with the additional command line argument ‘erase;.

There are some examples here to do the reprogramming with the erase option:


With the device continuously rebooting the timing of running the command is critical. Try and run the update_m32 program at the same time that you see the version information displayed on the Morserino-32 LCD.

Let us know how you get along with it…

Re: #morserino using the morserino documentation #morserino

I must admit that I am used to the LCWO school, and because of that I am a little biased with doing this their way. 40 lessons, one letter added per lesson, listening to the code, recording it and sending back the results to have it graded. I'm not much of an orator or singer to say the least. So I would like to set up the Koch trainer so that I can select a lesson, listen to the code for that lesson, maybe for a minute or even better infinitely, and then go on to the next lesson after I am satisfied.This would be more familiar to me from the LCWO site, although I would not expect to write in the results and have them evaluated as it is on the LCW0 site. I can figure out when it is time to move on to the next lesson myself!

I would note that on the LCWO site, there is one thing that I find a little irritating, they expect the user to type in the decoded results from the keyboard into a text box to be evaluated.  In other words you have to learn to be a touch typist as hunting and pecking will not do at the full letter/number lessons, especially at the higher speeds! Can you even imagine typing in at 20 wpm?

Incidental, 25 years ago, when I first got into ham radio, I went from 0 wpm to 22 wpm just by listening to random code on tapes (1 tape for each wpm) and it took me only three months to get there just by using my spare time while riding around in my car. The Iambic keyer is the only keyer I have ever used, and it only takes a tone osc practice, it's so simple.

Huh! 🤔 
You were complaining that the site you had found was in German only and you couldn’t find the Exercise Plan in English.
This was the only reason I bothered responding and sending you the website 
Trust you’re all sorted now?

Check the user manual wrt parameters. “Inter-character space” is what you need....

In the CW course (part 1 and part 2) it starts out by going to the CW keyer menu and then selecting snapshot 5, which was set up to support this mode. So it seems that the snapshots are just a list of chosen parameter values that could be used to go with any mode.  In this case the  CW mode was needed to be selected first, and then the snapshot to configure this mode so both items had to be selected in the proper order.  I could just have used the Koch mode and selected this snapshot and the mode would still have worked, although not very well since  a different snapshot was designed to be used for setting up this mode.  Of course one could go into a mode and then manually set up the parameters, but, obviously, the snapshot method is far easier.

Re: #morserino the WIFI function #morserino

John, M0STQ
 

Syd,
   I’m not sure what you are asking, exactly, but I’d like to help if I can.

The WiFi Trx (Wifi transceiver) mode connects what’s keyed into the M-32 to an internet host at an actual IP address or at a host name that can be DNS-translated to a IP address (like yahoo.com).

At that IP address, you have to have something that speaks “MOPP”, the Morse Over Packet Protocol” that Willi designed.

There are three types of end point for that WiFi Peer (destination for the WiFi Trx function) so far:

1) another Morserino-32. This can be a bit tricky to get to work across the internet, because you have to be able to access the other M-32 directly, which might well be behind NAT and/or firewalls; so there’s also

2) M32 chat servers, like the one Wojtek wrote, and is hosted by Willi at cq.morserino.info. These allow multiple M-32 owners to connect to the (internet-hosted) chat relay server, and send and receive morse between two or more M-32s. The relay/chat server just copies one client’s tx to all other connected clients. Recently a third animal turned up:

3) a QSObot server, which emulates a range of ham operators and has a basic QSO with an M-32 user.

Is this what you were asking about?

Which video did you mean?

As far as I know WIFI is a very local wireless connection to a device that has to connect to the internet.  So one would not think about staying at home and connecting to the internet unless one has the ability to make this connection through a WIFI device.  The video makes mention of using an IP address. Most of the time on the internet IPs are not directly used.  Instead it is customary to enter a registered name such as 'yahoo.com' which then gets associated with an IP address. Unless one knows someone who gives their IP address, one is not going to get real far in this endeavor. Most people don't even have a web address (via a web site).  So I'm a little confused as to what the intention was for making this item WIFI usable.  Any input on this subject of actually using this WIFI mode would be well appreciated.
