MORS ALPHABET

Method for transferring information using Morse code or morse code, short and long signs, and corresponding lights or sounds. It was created in 1835 by Samuel Morse, who became interested in telegraph in 1832. It began to be used in 1837. A patent was filed in 1840.

However, the system found by Morse was not easy to use. Morse, who started to work with his assistant, Veil, on this issue, was soon convinced that the system proposed by Veil was simpler. In addition to short and long signals, pauses were used in Veil’s system. This system was later called the American Morse Code.

Morse code; it can be transmitted audibly, by turning the radio signals on and off, by the electrical current passing through the telegraph wires, mechanically or by various means, such as visual (flashing of the lights).

Although the system is generally called Morse code, two different types of morse code are used in the application to express the English alphabet and punctuation marks. The first of these, the American Morse Alphabet, is generally used in telegraph systems, while the International Morse Alphabet works by only short and long signals, ignoring the tweens.

Telegraph companies complained about the length of the messages. Thereupon, abbreviations consisting of 5 codes were developed.
