Morse Code is one of those things that many people in the civilized world consider to be outdated and not worth knowing. If they even know what it is in the first place! The truth is, though it may be “old” and we have updated and faster ways of communicating, Morse Code is still an incredibly valuable skill.
Going beyond the standard SOS (Save Our Ship), understanding and being able to ‘speak’ this language will put you far ahead of others when and if a major disaster occurs. Communication and information will be invaluable and those who can facilitate, transmit, and interpret that information will be absolutely priceless. There is more than one story of people using Morse Code when other, more modern, forms of communication have failed.
Morse Code is one of those things that can be learned for free online or even by borrowing a book at the library! You could learn with your family and have a ‘secret code’ that few others will know or even recognize as a code. To most, Morse Code just sounds like a bunch of clicks or beeps that make no sense at all. If you couldn’t speak, but you could tap out Morse Code, chances are pretty good that you’d be rescued before it was too late. Especially if there are military around.
