Morse Code

It is very interesting to understand method of transmitting text information secretly as a series of on-off tones, lights or clicks that can be directly understood by a skilled listener or observer without special equipment. It is named for Samuel F.B. Morse, an inventor of the Telegraph.

Its combinations of “dots” and “Dashes” OR  “dits” and “dahs”. It means short and long signals called.

Each Morse code symbol represents either a text character (letter or numeral) or a prosign and is represented by a unique sequence of dots and dashes. The dot duration is the basic unit of time measurement in code transmission. The duration of a dash is three times the duration of a dot. Each dot or dash is followed by a short silence, equal to the dot duration. The letter of a word are separated by a space equal to three dots (one dash), and the words are separated by a space equal to seven dots. To increase the speed of the communication, the code was designed so that the length of each character in Morse is approximately inverse to its frequency of occurrence in English.
