Morse Part 3



Morse explained to his astonished spectators at the presentation at the University of New York: The spikes would stand for numbers and all of them together would make a cryptic combination

Morse gradually improved his machine. Together with colleagues, he also developed Morse Code, named after him. Now cryptic numbers were no longer being transmitted – just data instead – which was composed of three different signals: Short, long and stop.

The attempt was indeed successful: for the first time, a text had been transmitted using electricity.

In 1844, the first Morse line was established between Baltimore and Washington over a distance of over 60 kilometers.

If you like, Morse code was the precursor of today’s email – without which in the current digital world such a fast transfer of data and text would be unthinkable.
