Like you Ed, I too learnt Morse Code and taught it at Scouts (Sea Scouts). I used to be able to send quite quickly using a Morse key, but could never receive that fast. I certainly never got to the professional level of hearing a group of letters or short words without having to decode each letter.

I also used to listen to Morse with my father on his old Admiralty B40 receiver. I often used to hear the CQ code and knew it as meaning "I am seeking you" (CQ - get it!).
