Morse code...Blah blah blah blah....blah blah blah blah.
Given it is an antiquated and useless form of communication in today's world, even for emergencies because sending voice is easier to achieve than
sending a continuous wave signal that is intermittent, and the fact that morse code cannot be used for covert communications, and the fact that more
communication content can be sent over 1 packet of digital data over 1 ms time frame compared to morse code....I found it to be not only a nusiance
after earning my amature extra ticket back in 79, that I also found it to be something more of a novelty than a real form of communication.
It was good for the hey day thats for sure.
But if your trying to obtain a ham radio ticket, you dont need to know morse code anymore to get the novice ticket, which allows for full duplex voice
communications on several different bands.
Actually I think the tin can and string with the spoon worked well for morse code!
