SOS Morse Code : Help Signal (Learn This, You Might Need It)

.: This is interesting. S.O.S?

This post contains much more video than any other post. (At writing time) ;-P

What is SOS?
  • A signal or sign asking for help.
  • Using light flash or sounds, (or both)
  • sometimes is referred as "save our ship" or "save our soul"?
  • alphabets is from Morse Code.
  • consists of dit's [ · ] and dah's [ ]~~ ('dit' is a quick light flash, 'dah' is longer flash than dit, or, 'dit' is a short beep sound while 'dah' is 3 times longer)

How to Learn Morse Code?
The easiest way is to learn the Morse alphabets is by using the Caring__1 diagram (from WikiHow). This is the most easiest and the simplest way to learn or memorizing the Morse Code. (Diagram for Morse' number is not available at the moment).

How to use this Caring__1 diagram:

> the letter 'E' is dit, and the letter 'T' is dah (refer above)
> going downwards, say, we use the letter 'I'. 'I' is dit dit. And the letter 'A' is dit dah.
> another example, the letter 'G'. In Morse code, it is represented as dah dah dit. Or, in alternate form, ·
> try another example, the letter 'D'. dah dit dit. Or  · ·
Try it~   ;-)
