Who would think that Morse Code was the simplist? Or even vaguely sensible???
Translating english into a code like encryption, seemed like a good idea.
Actually, this is the ongoing problem with all of these stories. The assumption that English encoded into an encryption, or into a series of dots, numbers, whatever, is somehow NOT ENGLISH.
Context is everything. Exactly how encrypting English (or any language) into a code, and then sending it without any understanding of context would do ANYTHING boggles my mind.
I can beam Russian mixed with Cantonese in binary, but if you don't have context you could easily spend your entire life hearning it and never understanding it.
Morse code. Binary. Hex. Pig Latin. Doesn't freakin' matter.
