These Virtual Telegraph Keys were created for www.ncsgreece.com as a hands-on experience for those who may have never been exposed to Morse Code.
If you don't know the code, click on a letter in the table to listen to its sound, then move your mouse over the key's knob to duplicate the sound. If you're an experienced telegrapher, you might find it a real challenge to generate properly spaced characters using the mouse. Have fun!
Some of the objects in the YouTube video above were used to create this image of the ship-to-shore CW section of U.S. Naval Communications Station, Nea Makri, Greece, the way it looked in 1968. This is where the final message from the USS Scorpion was received just before she was lost. Over four decades later that message has not been released to the public and remains highly classified.
