WHAT IS MORSE CODE?
Morse code is a method of communicating with a series of sounds or lights that can be understood only by someone who knows the code.
Each Morse code symbol represents either a letter or number and is represented by a unique sequence of dots and dashes. The duration of a dash is three times the duration of a dot.
Samuel F.B. Morse invented a code that was used to send messages over electric telegraphs in the 1830s. The SOS distress signal — three dots, three dashes, three dots — proved to be a simple way to communicate in an emergency.
With the invention of the telephone (and, later, two-way radios and cellphones), Morse code is nowadays used mostly just for fun by amateur radio operators. Certain amateur radio bands are still reserved for Morse code use.
