Wednesday January 11, 2017 is Learn Your Name In Morse Code Day.

“Morse Code was one of the most important innovations of communications the world has seen, serving as the foundation of one of the first high-speed communications networks in the world. Used for everything from semaphore communication, to flashing with lights, to drawing it out as a sort of code, and most importantly, the use of telegraphs to help transmit information across vast distances in the days before the telephone, it’s hard to understate the importance of Morse Code.

Morse Code is attributed to three different inventors, Samuel F. B. Morse, Physicist Joseph Henry, and Alfred Vail, who all worked together to produce a system of transmitting information via Electric Telegraph.

The result was Morse Code.

Learn Your Name In Morse Code Day was created by someone known only as Brownielocks, and was done as part of trying to revitalize the love and recognition of this fading method of communication. While it’s no longer necessary to getting a Ham Radio License, it is still felt that it’s incredibly important to pass on, so that this versatile method of communication doesn’t disappear.

Celebrating Learn Your Name In Morse Code Day is right there in the name! Learn your name in Morse Code! This can serve as an excellent way to reintroduce yourself to the language, and help add it to the number of ways you can share information with your friends and loved ones. Even across vast distances you can exchange information with nothing more complicated than a flashlight, a mirror, or any device that can make sounds of varying duration to mimic the long and short pulses used in the Morse Code alphabet.

Never underestimate the value of having one more piece of communication in your tool kit, and let Learn Your Name In Morse Code Day broaden your linguistic horizons! We’d never be where we are today without it!” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/qJsH6
