ok, I got the pin definitions from the morsedecoder_USB code, so I'm almost sure i have the circuitry correct. I upladed the code onto the nerdkit, but when i press the button, the LED instatly turns on and off, and all i get on the screen is 1 dot (dit). so i can't hold the button for any dashes (dahs). i'm just wondering if i wired it wrong or i need to change someting in the code.

Hi Kareemroks101, welcome to the forum.

It's so nice when one answers their own questions.

Hopefully you will be back with more questions for us to answer.

Ralph
