Morse Tutor Kit – DIY
2023 11 20 update: Waitlist status. Need to do inventory but my employer has me working on the road right now – back in a week.
For a limited time, VE6LK and VE6TD are offering a kitting service for the W8BH Morse Tutor, ESP32 version. You can see all of the details and build instructions on W8BH’s website. You can see a full demo of the kit in action on Kyle AA0Z’s New CW Operator’s Roundtable on YouTube.
We source the parts, pretest the major components, kit them together and mail them out to you.
Why would you buy from us? Because we are taking out the hassle of sourcing parts from multiple vendors and we are pretesting the major modules.
You’ll receive all of the parts to build a functional W8BH ESP32 Morse Tutor, consisting of the following parts:
- 3.2″ display module
- ESP32 module
- Buck Converter board (power)
- PAM8403 Audio board
- 1/8″ stereo jacks (2)
- PCB Mount speaker
- Rotary Encoder
- 10K Log taper potentiometer
- SPST power slide switch
- Shorting jumper block
- 0.1″ female headers
- 0.1″ male header pins
- 10k and 20k resistor
- Knobs for controls (2)
- Circuit board
We provide a programmed and pre-tested ESP32 module with the current firmware version (so that you don’t have to learn how to do this), and we verify the functionality of each screen, each speaker and buck converter. Note that no case or mounting hardware is provided.
Build difficulty is at a NOVICE level for this project. If you own a basic pencil soldering iron, solder and basic hand tools, this project may take you up to 2 hours. Experienced builders will complete this in under 1 hour.
This offer is a kitting service only and no warranty is expressed or implied.
All prices on this page are in Canadian Dollars. We accept payment via PayPal (add 5%) or Interac e-transfer if in Canada.
Kit prices are $70 CAD per unit for any quantity.
If you do not own a soldering iron or do not wish to build it out yourself, add $25 and we’ll build it and test it for you.
Shipping per unassembled kit is $18 in Canada and $27 to Continental USA and for assembled kits is $22 in Canada and $31 to Continental USA. We’ll provide a shipping quote for multiple kits or to Alaska or Hawaii. We are not offering shipping outside of these areas.

We will respond to the note and confirm you are on the list of those interested. Once we figure out the next round dates we will ask for a deposit. When the parts are in and we are ready to ship we will send you a PayPal invoice with your final total. Note that PayPal may add some form of tax depending on where you are located – we are not collecting nor charging tax as these are private sales and we’re tracking what is received.
