What He Said.

And I'll work with anyone who wants to do it.

You can make your own Morse practice tapes if you want, with a tape
machine, a PC, and a copy of G4FON's Koch Method Tutor or LB3KB's
Just Learn Morse Code. Both are good; the first has lots of bells
and whistles[1], the second doesn't.

Again, I'll work with anyone who wants to pass Element 1. Just let me
know and I'll arrange a class and/or a CW sked on-air.

[1]  Ability to turn QRM on at various levels or off completely,
     simulate manual straight-key sending with speed variations,
     apparent TX and/or RX drift as shown by changing frequency of
     audible signal, and so on.
