KC Amateur Radio Club to hold Morse code training class Saturday
Art Delperdang, seated, teaches a group of local Scouts what their names sound like in Morse code. Delperdang had several Morse training devices.
Morse code, once a vital method of sending messages across telegraph lines, was the primary method of communication with other amateur radio operators. As technology evolved amateur radios became capable of voice transmissions and code slowly, over the past 100 years, lost its important role. Learning Morse was a required skill to obtain an amateur radio operator’s license.
