THE SOUND OF MORSE CODE AT 25 WORDS PER MINUTE

THE NAVAL MORSE CODE (CW) BROADCAST HAD SPECIAL SCHEDULES EVERY FOUR HOURS FOR SUBMARINES AT SEA. DURING THOSE SUBMARINE SCHEDULES, THE SPEED OF MORSE CODE WAS INCREASED FROM 22 TO 100 WORDS PER MINUTE. THIS WAS DONE TO MINIMIZE THE TIME REQUIRED AT PERISCOPE DEPTH TO COPY THE MESSAGES. THE RADIOMEN ONBOARD THE SUBMARINES RECORDED THE 100 WPM MORSE CODE ON A TAPE RECORDER. ONCE THE SCHEDULES WERE OVER, THE SUBMARINES HAD THE OPTION OF RETURNING BELOW PERISCOPE DEPTH WHILE THE RADIOMEN SLOWED DOWN THE TAPE RECORDER TO 25 WORDS PER MINUTE SO THEY COULD COPY THE MESSAGES.

WHICH IS FASTER ? MORSE CODE OR TEXT MESSAGING ? FIND OUT BY WATCHING THIS VIDEO OF THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO

ONE OF MY FAVOURITE MORSE CODE SCENES IN THE MOVIES. THE MOVIE IS "A NIGHT TO REMEMBER" RELEASED IN 1958. IN THIS SCENE, THE CAPTAIN OF THE TITANIC TELLS RADIO SPARKS JACK PHILLIPS AND HAROLD BRIDE ONBOARD RMS TITANIC TO SEND THE DISTRESS CALL BECAUSE THE SHIP HAS STRUCK AN ICEBERG AT 2345 AND IS FLOUNDERING. THE SS CALIFORNIAN IS ONLY A FEW MILES AWAY BUT CYRIL EVANS THE RADIO OPERATOR SHUT DOWN THE RADIO AND WENT TO BED 10 MINUTES EARLIER AT 2335. IF ONLY EVANS HAD BEEN AWAKE AND LISTENING. ALL OF THE TITANIC PASSENGERS COULD HAVE BEEN SAVED.

ANOTHER OF MY FAVOURITE MORSE CODE SCENES IN THE MOVIES. AGAIN IN THE MOVIE "A NIGHT TO REMEMBER" RELEASED IN 1958. IN THIS SCENE, HAROLD COTTAM, THE RADIO OPERATOR ONBOARD RMS CARPATHIA, DECIDES TO HAVE ONE FINAL LISTEN AT 0011 BEFORE GOING TO BED. THIS IS WHEN HE PICKS UP THE CQD / SOS SIGNAL FROM TITANIC. HE IMMEDIATELY ACKNOWLEDGES THE SOS AND RUNS TO WAKE UP THE CAPTAIN. UNFORTUNATELY, THE CARPATHIA IS 58 NAUTICAL MILES AWAY AND THE TITANIC SINKS BEFORE THE SHIP ARRIVES ON THE SCENE.
