This video below was taken of me between 1993-1995 when we lived in Cyprus. I held the Cypriot Amateur Radio callsign 5B4AFC and used Morse code exclusively. My old ‘squeeze keyer‘ morse key – an ETM3C – has been with me for well over 40 years now and is still going strong. People, in these days of nearly instant global communications, find it hard to believe that, when I started out as a Merchant Navy Radio Officer in1972, Morse code was our only way of sending data from ship to shore. Happy days!
