As a true ham radio fanatic, a favorite ham activity is yakking with other hams in Morse Code, also called CW(for continuous waves). Morse Code has a mystique to it, it is an extremely cool method with which to communicate.

Morse Code provides a letter-based method of communication by means of any type of signal that can be switched on and off … light, sound, etc. As such, it can accommodate messages in any language that uses the familiar Roman (English) alphabet. While using the simplest possible transmitting and receiving equipment, it is highly immune to noise, and can succeed over very noisy ‘channels.

SlowCode (learn letters, punctuation, numbers, prosigns) Monday evenings on the AARO Linked Repeaters, following the InfoNet, around 9:30 p.m.
