A colleague is looking for recommendations on a morse reader, preferably stand-alone rather than a computer programme. A hearing defect prevents copying by ear so a reader is the only option.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I can't comment on the stand alone but if you have to go to a pc program CW Get from my experience performs as good as MRP40.

Stand alone system:

Sinclair ZX-81 + TZXduino (SD Card Storage), and Morse decode software

ZX-81 (eBay)

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/234395233927

TZXDUINO (eBay)

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174732533452

Free MORSE Decode Software

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/entry/29114/ZX81/Morse_Reader

Its old school, but cheap, reliable, and works.

He may well not be in luck. To be honest, even the software options are sadly lacking with probably MRP being the best of the bunch.

There's not much standalone equipment but I did spot this on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Reader-Decoder-Translator-DC7-12V-Essential/dp/B083DCR816 and for £20 it may be worth a punt, but there are no reviews.

I think you’re right. He’s an avid CW operator and, despite his age, still likes to go out portable; that’s why a stand-alone unit rather than a computer programme would be best.

I had thought of the Wolfwave from SOTABEAMS since it has some audio processing to help with hearing issues as well as having morse decoding - maybe between the two he can get a working system.

No - I was looking for the price and availability to pass on to my friend in Canada in case he wants to pursue that option.
