Morse Code?

Recommended Posts

i did a search and nothing came up

 

does anyone here happen to be familiar with it?

 

my and my friend originally wanted to learn it so we could cheat on tests together (it was more of a joke than anything serious), and we both downloaded this morse trainer online, and we're just starting to learn it and it's pretty cool actually.

 

we even printed out copies for ourselves and laminated them /nohomo

if any of you army guys or something know morse code some tips and pointers would be kinda nice considering this is harder to learn than i thought.

yeah i saw on the history channel on modern marvels i think that SOS doesn't actually stand for anything, but whoever made it for a distress call chose those letters because they're the easiest sequence in the code

SOS

 

There was a Morse Code thread on another forum I used to look at.

Check there. Normally I'd do it for you, but I don't really feel like it right now. Sorry, just being honest.

Morse code isn't used much nowadays but I'm sure a teacher would catch on if you tried to use it to cheat.

at the time the idea sounded cool, but now just learning it is pretty awesome, and i don't have any classes with her anyway. although, the teachers at my school are generally pretty stupid.

 

anyway so far i'm on 8 characters on this morse trainer.

We cheat by using red, green, blue, and black bic pens. Then put different colored cap tops on the pen to "flag" the answers.

Or you can do it this way (recommended by my uncle who's a professor at University of Michigan)

SOS is the commonly used description for the International Morse code distress signal (· · · — — — · · ·). This distress signal was first adopted by the German government in radio regulations effective April 1, 1905, and became the worldwide standard when it was included in the second International Radiotelegraphic Convention, which was signed on November 3, 1906, and became effective on July 1, 1908.

From the beginning, the SOS distress signal has actually consisted of a continuous sequence of three-dits/three-dahs/three-dits, all run together without letter spacing. In International Morse Code, three dits form the letter S, and three dahs make the letter O, so "SOS" became an easy way to remember the correct order of the dits and dahs. In modern terminology, SOS is a "procedural signal" or "prosign", and the formal way to write it is with a bar above the letters, i.e. SOS.

 

In popular usage, SOS became associated with phrases such as "Save Our Souls," "Save our Ship" "Save Our Shelby," "Shoot Our Ship", "Sinking Our Ship", "Survivors On Shore", and "Save Our Seamen". It is mostly known by "Save Our Souls". However, these phrases were a later development, most likely used to help remember the correct letters—something known as a backronym.

 

Many songs have been made of the distress signal SOS, such as "Message in a Bottle" by The Police, "SOS" by ABBA, "SOS" by Rihanna, "S.O.S." by The Jonas Brothers, and "Stranger" by Gamma.
