Abstract : This report represents one phase of research conducted by the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences on improving Morse Code Acquisition skills of military Morse Code interceptors. This Morse Code training study is the first to examine performance in copying code based on response times and accuracy. For this phase of research, a method was developed for classifying errors based on auditory characteristics of the code signals. This classification scheme was then applied to explore variations in error pattern as an indicator of slow training progress
