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
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).
