Morse  Code

created by Samuel Morse
(1791-1872)

A 'dash'  ( )
           is equal to three 'dots'  ( • • •  ).
The space between the dots and/or dashes forming
 the same letter, is equal to one dot.
The space between letters in a word is equal to three dots.
The space between words is equal to seven dots.
When reading the Morse Code out loud, get the rhythm
right by saying  'dah'  for a dash and  'di'  for a dot.
If the dot is the last element of a letter,
pronounce it 'dit'.
