While poking around the NPR site, I found this. Worth a listen to.. Thought members here might be interested. Requires RealMedia Player..

"July 14, 1999
The last commercial Morse code transmissions took place this week, ending a radio era."

A slightly misleading start to the article as Portishead Radio/GKA was still working WT traffic until August of 1999 and the British MF coast stations were still open to commercial WT traffic until they closed on December 31 1999.
