Morse is a code of communication consisting of intermittent broadcast signals, which represent letters, punctuation, and numbers. The code was invented in 1835 by Samuel Morse and developed with the aim to use them for the telegraph. Since with the telegraph you are limited to two options: key down (= current) or key not pressed (= no power) and duration (short or long). Telegraphy is widely regarded as a forerunner of later digital communication.
Morse code was invented to create and interpret messages over electric devices, such as light bulbs, switches, power supply, 3 connecting leads, etc.
They are designed according to the following set of rules:
- a dash lasts as long as three dots only;
- space as long as one dot is left between each pulse;
- space as long as one dash is left between each letter of a word;
- space as long as 5 dots is left between each word of a sentence.
