27 April – Morse Code Day

 

Morse Code Day - Elizabeth Place

We’ve heard the sound in movies, both old and new. It finds its way into horror movies as some lost mysterious code. Heroes in action flicks use it to help send out secret messages past the villains holding them captive and secret lovers have passed messages using it in carefully constructed pieces of art or even braille. It served as the foundation for a new era of communication, and has served vital roles in wars old and new. What is it we’re talking about? Morse Code, of course!

Morse Code Day celebrates this amazingly concise, powerful, and influential way of transmitting information and the history of how it changed the world.
