Morse Code practice oscillator diagram

This is a Morse code practice oscillator has been built by N2UHC

The circuit is a simple oscillator circuit based on a 555 timer IC. There are only a few components needed to construct it.

Parts list:
IC1- 555 timer
R1 – 150k
R2 – 1K
C1 – 10 uF electrolytic
C2 – .01 uF ceramic disc
9V battery clip

See the circuit in action (my own video) that I’ve built myself.

At last my Morse Practice Circuit Completed – sort of

As promised in the previous post,Simple Morse Practice Oscillator Circuit has been completed. Sorry, I cant do anything much with the photo quality as it was taken using my stupid mobile phone.

I promise to include a Youtube video demonstrating its sound and operation. Next, I need to get a decent casing and some cheap morse keyer to go with this oscillator. I might be planning to make one that could interface with CWirc too.

Simple Morse Practice Oscillator Circuit

This will be my next homebrew project, a morse practice oscillator circuit. 9W2AZV and I are going to build this as we are preparing ourselves to perfect our Morse code sending/receiving skills.

In the spirit of amateur radio/ham, we will homewbrew the equipment using easily obtainable parts from our nearest electronic stores.

Here’s the circuit


We are still thinking of the easiest and cheapest way to homebrew the keyer, but we are considering to use discarded/faulty computer mouse as our first keyer.

Morse Mouse Keyer

As a bonus, we thought of hooking this keyer straight to PC serial port, so we could use it with XChat CWirc plugin to enable us to test our Morse skill on the irc.

With the amount of work i’m having this week, I would estimate that this project would be completed by the end of March. So stay tune for photos!
