What's the point of doing Morse Code
any more these days? Didn't that go away with the telegraph?
No, it didn't.
In some ways the general perception is
correct that it has become anachronistic. But when an emergency occurs and lots
of equipment is broken, there is no other means of communications that works
with the simplest radios, gets through interference better, and uses less radio
bandwidth (allowing more communications to occur simultaneously) than Morse
Code. In short, there may be nothing else that will work in some emergencies.
For those reasons, Morse Code is
required to get any Ham Radio license which has privileges in the HF Ham bands,
at frequencies where the atmosphere is able to refract the signals back to the
surface hundreds or thousands of miles away. It is considered unlikely that the
Morse Code requirement will be removed any time soon from Ham Radio license
classes with access to HF Ham bands. (Morse Code is not required for all classes
of Ham Radio licenses. Since the early 1990's many countries, including the USA,
Japan, most of Western Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, have made entry-level
"no-code" Ham Radio licenses which are restricted from using HF bands but have
full privileges on the VHF, UHF and microwave Ham bands.)
Some Hams do Morse Code because they
like it. Others do it because they want other privileges that come with a higher
class of Ham Radio license that requires it. Most Hams agree that the
requirement is necessary to maintain a sufficiently-large group of people ready
to respond when the code is used by other stations in an emergency or disaster.
In the United States, these are the
license classes and their corresponding code testing requirements.
- The International Morse code
- I am not sure about the code of the
other characters Unicode for instance .
