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!
