Morse Code Is A Method Of Transmitting Text Information As A Series Of On-off Tones, Lights, Or Clicks That Can Be Directly Understood By A Skilled Listener Or Observer Without Special Equipment.

The International Morse Code Encodes The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Basic Latin Alphabet, Some Extra Latin Letters, The Arabic Numerals And A Small Set Of PUNCTUATION & PROCEDURAL SIGNALS (PROSIGNS) As Standardized Sequences Of Short And Long Signals Called “Dots” And “Dashes” Or “Dits” And “Dahs”.


  1. THE DOT DURATION: Is The Basic Unit Of Time Measurement In Code Transmission.
  2. DASH: Is Three Times The Duration Of A Dot.
  3. SPACE BETWEEN DOT OR DASH: Is Followed By A Short Silence, Equal To The Dot Duration.
  4. SPACE BETWEEN LETTERS OF A WORD: Are Separated By A Space Equal To Three Dots (One Dash).
  5. SPACE BETWEEN WORDS: Are Separated By A Space Equal To Seven Dots.
