Morse Code
Morse Code was invented by Samuel Morse in 1840s. The code is
very useful in emergency signalling (SOS) with a radio, mirror, or
flashlight. It is made up short signals called dits (represented as
dots) and long signals are called dahs (represented as dashes).
In Morse code, timing is very
important. The length of a dot can be
should
be
short
enough
that
messages can be sent quickly and
long enough to be heard over great
distances. Once this standard unit of
time has been established, a dash
should last three times as long as a
dot. The pause between individual
dots and dashes should take as long
as a single dot, the pause between
two characters should take as long as
a dash and the pause between two
words should be twice as long as a
dash (six times as long as a dot).
