Samuel Morse,the Man for whom this code is named,sent the first public Message using the code in 1844 from Washington DC to Baltimore.It became a long distance communication standard,and Amateur radio broadcasters still use it today..and in a "Record Breakers" show I saw recently,with a trained operator,it proved to be STILL a faster means of communication than a teenager with a cellphone using Txtspk!

Yes, I know Morse code. In the past it was widely used. However, I have heard that it is not available today. In fact you can find the Morse code converter via the net and it is fun to play it with your friends. I love China

start transmission Mr Morse created an alphabit made up of longs and shorts. · · · — — — · · · which is three letters of significance Hello there Bipradip, 3honour, Shepherdspy I suspect the binary equivalent would then be one is long and short is a zero. If this is so, then the morse long and shorts · · · — — — · · · would be 000,111, 000 in binary? 000=s 111=o 101=k This transmission has been for explanation only and 000,111 everything is 111, 101 stop transmission
