On the Subject of Morse Code

An antiquated form of naval communication? What next? At least it’s genuine Morse Code, so pay attention and you might just learn something.

  • Interpret the signal from the flashing light using the Morse Code chart to spell one of the words in the table.
  • The signal will loop, with a long gap between repetitions.
  • Once the word is identified, set the corresponding frequency and press the transmit (TX) button.
How to Interpret

1. A short flash represents a dot.

2. A long flash represents a dash.

3. There is a long gap between letters.

4. There is a very long gap before the word repeats.
