I never get an answer to just what good Morse code would be in this
doomday world.


1) It keeps some of us busy, doing our favorite thing

2) It makes it possible for some people to communicate with others, even
when they don't have the motor skills to do so in the first place

3) It allows you to reach longer than any other form of HF communication

4) It will come in handy it *that* ever happens

and so on

I don't know your reasoning for making a statement like that, but no
matter what it is it applies to ham radio in general. What do you
need ham radio for in the first place ? A cell phone is all you
need to talk to anybody, anywhere, anytime.


Morse is more properly moribund but Morse is not the the whole of Ham
radio


Yes... And... So ?


you reasoning is clearly flawed

saying Morse is dead has nothing to do with the rest of your wordage

plain flase or at best incomplete

Morse encoded CW does not allowed a greater range than say Heilshrieber
would

4) It will come in handy it *that* ever happens


how?

still waiting for an answer to the question, asked many times and many
ways I'll try another

how will Morse be able to deliver anything of objective value if the
world is so far gone that morse encoded cw was ALL there was

and so on

I don't know dude.. use your imagination. Do I have to write a
post-apocalyptic story for you? Ok, let's say that a big ass asteroid hit
the earth and blew up a lot of ****, wiped out all the telecommunications
stuff and there were only pockets of people left, scattered all over. You
rip a battery out of a car and power up your HF rig, hoist up a simple
antenna and start beaming **** as far out as you can. Maybe the atmosphere
is so ****ed by the crap in the air that voice is totally garbled, or maybe
the only people are 10000 miles away and you can barely reach them with your
****ty antenna. Or maybe they don't even speak your language but can
understand some rudimentary morse stuff. Who knows?

I'm obviously not saying this situation is at all likely, but it and others
are certainly possible. Would I spend my time learning code for this
possibility? No, but I can understand that some people might.

Oh, I don't think your little example makes my characterization "baseless."
But it does looks as though I tweaked some people by calling their choice of
study a waste of time.

Studying Latin has done more for my English composition than
any English class I ever took. Your characterization is baseless.




Oooohhhhhhh -- a tweaker. Is that the best you have to occupy
your useless life?

Well, this is a hobby project and I have to select how I want to spend the
little time I have for hobbies. Currently, I choose to add more features to
Just Learn Morse Code and later I might want to spend some time on regular
ham activities rather than just extending my working hours without being
paid...

One user reported that the executable runs just fine on Linux under the WINE
emulator, tho.

If you published the source under the GPL, you might find a few people
interested in porting it to a real OS. I wouldn't dare install DirectX
on any computer with a NIC, but don't have any use for a box without
one.

and just what is this "commincation going to achieve?
