The American Morse Code

Saturday and Sunday July 13 - 14, 2013, The Chattanooga Amateur Radio Club will be having an important special event for Hams (Amateur Radio Operators).

The DIT tomorrow (Saturday) will provide more information.

But, in the meantime, one of the activities that will be part of the Special Event will be the sounds of Morse Code.

An "old timer" of the Club knows about the American Morse Code, also known as the Rail Road Code, and wrote an article about it which was posted on the Club Web Site.

To make it easier for you to read, we did a cut and paste.

It is a really interesting historical account of a sound that is long gone but still in the memory of some.
