    Anyone ever use morse code to communicate? I remember briefly flashing signals between big city highrises to friends using spot lights. I think that morse code and lights or IR lanterns would be a really interesting way to communicate without using radios at all in a crisis. It might also transfer well to mountainous terrain.

    I don't know morse code. Interesting idea but I can't really dedicate the time to memorizing it. That's a lot of dots and dashes.

    That's the extent of my morse code knowledge. Something I remember from boy scouts.

    Would be a good method.........the code is not used much anymore. I have laminated morse code card as well. Learned the code when I built my first heath kit radio (a long long time ago)
