Morse Code on the internet.   Makezine.com vol 58 Aug 2017 issue has an article operating morse on internet connections using a Raspberry Pi.  The cost would be low.   If you ignore his laser-cut box.  It does appear interesting for someone who understands the Pi.  It uses something called WebSockets. 

Software should be at Github.com/theautodidacts/internettelegraph/releases
Perhaps someone who knows about the pi and internet connections could tell us old timers how it works, if it does and why I would want to send CW across the internet.

Went to the Makezine site and searched, but came up with nothing.  I guess you have to buy the mag, or my typing skills weren't showing up.

I went to the Github and found a source file and a binary file, but I've never seen a Github with less information.  No "readme" file, no nothin.  Just the source and bin files.

Anyway - that aside - I can see that this sort of thing could be popular among certain hams living in retirement homes and such, where there are too many restrictions for regular on-the-air activity.

It seems that the new Opus, latency aware codec, coupled with some associated streaming software functionality, could be used for the "internet morse," and probably would be pretty good for it.   Methinks someone would have to run a "gathering place" server, which could list the "CQ callers" - and connect this to that.

Very interesting ...

That advice in there of transcribing  the code down as "dots" and "dashes"  and decoding it later... Now, the person that advised to do that, has never learned the code.
