RUFzXP : CREATING WORD LISTS FOR SENDING RANDOM WORDS

I have uploaded some notepad word lists from:
THE 3000 MOST COMMON ENGLISH WORDS.
...see all the attachments below...
They are organized in groups of about (125-187) words per file;
which keeps the practice sessions from being too long.

I will try and get the whole list up here from :
http://www.paulnoll.com/Books/Clear-English/English-3000-common-wor...

If you want to make your own list of words,
in order for it to work in RUFzXP you have to make sure of several things:
1. There is only one word per line
2. There are no spaces before or after each word
3. Remove all punctuation from the words
4. The name of the file ends in .txt
5. There are no "repeats" of any of the words in the file
6. There must not be a space after the last letter of the last word in the list

NOTE:

You may have to change the name of the file you just created with WORD BUILDER.
If your new file has .dic instead of .txt, you have to rename the file by right clicking on the file and select rename and then type in txt after the period and then RUFzXP will recognize this file as a correct file type for random word sending.

I got to this a little late. Very Helpful. I have used Fldigi to make MP3 files for my portable Mp3 player. Certain words seem to give me trouble so I have broken the files down to the individual words using Word List Builder. I than make a list of the problem words and work on them. Very nice. Thanks...

FOR QRQ WORD TRAINING

QRQ - yet another CW trainer for Linux/Unix

Current version: 0.2.0 - May 7th 2011 - see ChangeLog - Downloads.

qrq is an open source Morse telegraphy trainer for Linux and Unix operating systems, similar to the classic DOS version of Rufz by DL4MM.

It's not intended for learning telegraphy (check out LCWO or have a look at radio.linux.org.au for CW learning software), but to improve the ability to copy callsigns at high speeds, as needed for example for Contesting.


How to use it

Using qrq is simple: qrq sends 50 random calls from a database. After each call, it waits for the user to enter what he heard and compares the entered callsign with the one sent. If the callsign is copied correctly, the speed is increased by 10cpm / 2wpm and full points are credited, if there were mistakes in the callsign entered, the speed decreases by 10cpm / 2wpm and (depending on how many letters were correct) only a fraction of the maximum points are credited.

A callsign can be heard again once by pressing F6, hitting F10 quits the program.

The possible speed ranges from 20cpm (4wpm) to infinity, the initial speed can be set by the user (in .qrqrc or in the settings menu, F5).

Additionally, there are several training modes available. Arbitrary databases of callsigns or words can be loaded, it's possible to practice at a fixed speed, etc.

 

you just copy/past these files into the /usr/share/qrq folder on your LINUX BOX
then after hitting F5 and then "d"  you can scroll up or down to select the word list file desired...

.qcb files found (in /usr/share/qrq/

Here are all 3,000 words in one QCB file:

There is also a qrq version for MAC OSx thanks to MARC, KB1OOO
