Hey, I was filpping though an old QST and saw this. (Dec '97, page
98) It's sort of a logic tree for decoding Morse, originaly by Tom
Hedges, W8BKE way back in 1934.

A star in the center is home.

If you hear a dot, move to the right and decode an "E". Another dot?
move to the right again for "I" and so on.

Dot then Dash ?, move up from the "E" to decode "A". Another dot and
move to the left for a "R". Yet another dot? go left again for a "L"

Hopefully this will come out looking right:

                       J
                        -
                       W . P
                        -
          L . R . A
                        -
     X (*) . E . I . S . H
      - -
B . D . N . T
            - -
      C . K M . G . Z
            - - -
           Y O Q

I'm not sure if there is any rule against using a logic tree like
this durring an exam, but with it one could easly decode 5 wpm and be
on thier way to Extra in no time. Humm, a little scarry, huh?
