The Morse Code

You might think that Morse code had died out long ago. Here’s a recording of what is known as a ‘pile up.’ About 11 seconds into the recording, you’ll hear Radio Amateur enthusiasts around the world trying to make contact with one person who has a rare callsign. Radio Amateurs record the contacts (AKA QSOs) with other Radio Amateurs around the world and collect contacts like other people collect rare stamps. The Morse code is alive and well!

    Many thanks Lyndon. I’ve only returned to Amateur Radio recently. Have acquired some new equipment and an aerial. I was G4LFE, now GM4LFE! I’m not sure about competitions but I will tune in and see what’s going on. I’m all CW here. The transceiver does have a microphone but never used!!
