The BEST way to learn morse code is with a "Code Buddy" .
The tapes get old and familiar, and ARRL broadcast come and go quickly.
On-air learning is best for improving your skills, once you've got down the basics.
I taught my kids most of the frequently used letters, to the point that they
could make simple words, in an afternoon..
And yes, your first license, which allows you privledges in LOTS of areas,
requires no code to be used or tested. Study the online practice test at
www.qrz.com , and go take that test!
