About Morse Code

Morse code is a method of transmitting text information as a series of on-off audible tones or light pulse. There are two different signal durations called dots and dashes (or dits and dahs). The International Morse Code standardize each number and letters of the alphabet with a unique sequence of dots and dashes. It was a primary means of communication during World War II by various countries. Today, it is mostly used in aviation as a way to identify navigational stations and among amateur radio operators to identify radio repeaters.

This United States military uses the phonetic alphabet adopted by NATO. The phonetic alphabet is a spelling alphabet to more clearly spell out words particularly when communicating with poor radio signal, loud environment, or in situations where words or letters can be misunderstood. Quick and clear communication is vital to any military operation and using everyday speak can lead to fatal decisions being made or actions taken.
