Morse code: Many have heard of it but, do they really know what it is? What the beeps and clicks stand for? If cell phones and landlines quit working, how many would know how to communicate over long distances? Let’s say you do “know” what Morse code is. Could you send or receive a message if needed?
In this day and age, many people can’t. Unfortunately, Morse code has become a lost skill that could make communicating quite a challenge should SHTF. It doesn’t have to be that way though. It’s simple enough to learn — you just need to know the code alphabet.
Most people can learn it rather quickly through one of the following methods. Try for yourself with the following chart.

Others say the best way to learn is to see and hear the alphabet and letters tapped out as they go. Maybe the following video will help.
Did you get the hang of it? Still need something else to get that alphabet mastered? What about a catchy little jingle? You know, one that is annoying enough it just sticks in your head — and plays on, and on, and on.
Granted, you may not have picked it up just by reading and listening here today, but remember it IS only 26 letters with the potential to save you or your family’s life someday. Just another ability to pass on to children while teaching them survival skills.
