    I don't use it... but I 'know' Morse code ... it was 'absorbed' since age 12.. Being a musician also helps to learn/understand it (and vice versa by the way!) The key set is a Standard Model Mac Key... Manufactured by Theodore R Mc Elroy "world's' champion radio telegrapher'.. Boston, Mass, USA The only time I use 'code' is to rag on my brother (the ham) or talk to him "in code' secretly or to see if the code used in a movie is correct or not.. (surprising how often it's correct.. )

    Your boat

    She is out of the pen and afloat... 'repairs accomplished'... Pretty amazing to be that close with no tourists or guards around last week... Was doing a job for one of the 'olde towne team' boys (Red Sox) nearby... The drydock itself is amazing...so old....
