It was extensively used throughout Europe and America in very early (mid 1800’s) land-line communications and has continued to be used to the present in America for this form of Land-Line telegraphic communication wherein the indicators had been carried across the land by strains (wires) supported by telegraph poles.
How I might have loved some of your codes when I was in elementary college! I even went as far as to learn Morse Code. Unfortunately, my friends refused to memorize it, so I had nobody to ship my secret Morse coded messages to. It was all fun until I acquired caught passing a coded notice in my 7th grade classroom…and the instructor figured it out! Thanks for a really enjoyable hub.
Telegraph messages had been despatched by tapping out the code for each letter within the type of long and brief signals. Quick indicators are referred to as dits (represented as dots). Lengthy signals are known as dahs (represented as dashes). The code was transformed into electrical impulses and despatched over telegraph wires. A telegraph receiver on the opposite finish of the wire converted the impulses again into to dots and dashes, and decoded the message.
The unique telegraph system had an apparatus on the receiving end that spat out a string of paper with indentations on it. Quick indentations have been known as dots” and the longer ones dashes.” As telegraph customers turned more adept with the code, they quickly allotted with the paper tape and deciphered code by yr. Self made tycoon Andrew Carnegie labored as a telegraph operator as a boy. He set himself aside by learning to decipher Morse code by ear.
Averted in Adventures of the Gummi Bears , where there are ancient signaling devices called gummiscopes that fireside a beam of light that glints on and off in an equivalent of Morse code. As it occurs, the machines have a mechanical arm that mechanically interprets and writes down the signaling into the vernacular. After the Gummi Glen scope was destroyed, Zummi finds a signal handbook in the Glen’s library to interpret one other gummiscope’s message.
