One I have always wondered about is from "Hunt for Red October" what did, if anything, did Capt Mancuso send to Ramius vis the periscope flashes .. Anyone ever try to copy it?

It was in Russian Morse. Quite different from English Morse.



From what I understood, it was measurements for playmate of the month... Smiley

Now if that isn't enough to motivate you to practice code then I don't know what is.

Lost Horizon, the 1937 film with Ronald Coleman and Jane Wyatt, shows two Vibroplexes in action as part of a montage depicting the search for the missing plane that eventually lands at Shangra La.

Yeah, that part I remember plus we get what Ryan read to him to send, no way he sent all that plus there is  no way to really decode the clicking Mancuso did, I was mainly was wondering about the flashes from one of the periscope near the end of that scene .. You tubed it last night but couldn't make it out

Well, again "literary license" and all, the periscope scene was just a few seconds, but it would have taken several minutes of time to  send all that Ryan read to him at the rate he was clicking away there. And then there is the Russian/English morse thing.   What can you say, it was a movie, but a pretty enjoyable one though.

Un-picking the quotes...

Yeah. Often seems the tapping, clicking or flashing is going pretty slowly so that the audience, who mostly can't read code, can recognise that there's supposed to be some meaning in it, but the message is read out rather faster so the story keeps moving. That's the movies...
