Most new and even some old have no concept of the historical value of how morse code impacted our country ,past history, and present communications technology. I can understand how we can forget and even not acknowledge the inventor ,or history behind it when we become eager to make use of it in ham radio.

This article will explain a bit the importance behind morse code in U.S. history and give a sense of value when you hit that key and send that dot and dash. It'll also make you feel like your in a time machine of sort everytime you hit that morse key at home, or in the field leaving you to think how can a 150 year old technology thought to be obsolete still be so useful.

When someone asks you "why CW" over the Internet or cell phone you can hit them with a little U.S. historical pride.

Good call, and if you like that, read "A Thread Across the Ocean".
