Default If you had to use CW to save someone's life, would that person die?

Ham's care more about operating appliances than knowing how to save a lives.

How many times in the entire history of amateur radio
has a ham used CW to actually save a life? One would
think there would be a book full of examples by now.

Did that save even one life? If the Titanic's CW operator
had not bullied the California's CW operator off the air,
the California might have saved the day. But after such
shabby treatment from the Titanic's arrogant CW operator,
the California's CW operator shut down and turned in.

We aren't talking about failure to receive a CW SOS. Those ships that
responded did so after receiving word of the sinking by radio. They
saved many lives from the lifeboats which would otherwise have been lost
to the cold.
