Black Cat Systems ( announces that
Morse Mania version 3.4.0 has been released and is now available.
This version includes enhancements to the Koch method for learning
morse code.

Morse Mania is a morse code tutor for the Macintosh. The software
package helps you learn morse code at speeds ranging from 5 to 40
words per minute. Morse Mania is ideal for amateur (ham) radio
operators who desire to learn or improve their morse code
proficiency, especially in order to upgrade their license class. The
generated morse code is played using the computer’s speaker.

In addition to drills to help learn the various characters, Morse
Mania also allows complete text files to be sent, so that “real life”
messages can be used for practice. Simulated morse code conversations
(called a QSO in ham lingo) can also be sent. In addition, the user
can type characters at the keyboard, which are then translated into
morse code, and played.

It also supports the Farnsworth mode, which increases the speed of
the dots and dashes, and lengthens the pause between letters sent,
allowing the student to learn morse code at higher speeds more easily.

Finally, it allows the use of the Koch method of learning the code,
considered by many to be the easiest way to learn high speed morse

Morse Mania 3.4.0 is available for Mac OS X.

Morse Mania is $19.99. A copy of Morse Mania may be downloaded from
