Target speed

Previous Top Next

If you intend to take a 5 W.P.M. test then start at 6 W.P.M and stay at that all the way through. Check the speed details with your testing authority. Often, the characters are sent at a higher speed of 15/18 W.P.M. with pauses between so that the overall speed is 5 W.P.M. This non- standard Morse code is often called Farnsworth code.
