Hola Koindog, muchas gracias! Heron did not know that one.
When Heron was a Morse code man 'the end' was dit dah - dit dah dit. AR.
'end of msg'.
Over the decades things change. Morse was ended in the USCG about 1995. Hard to
believe it has been 20 years now. Think about the changes in communications that have
happened just since 1957! Amazing! Regardvs,

Yes, that is true! Speaking as a former USCG morse code radioman 1st class, Heron can
say that Morse code is merely a method of radio communications and is not a secure method
unless what we send and receive is further coded. Heron experienced many mid watches
at sea when we would receive messages from HQ and the radio operators never knew one thing
about the message. Messages of perhaps 400 or 500 number groups of 5 numbers.
Then the comm officer had to spend hours decoding the message. Somewhat boring for
the radiomen listening and typing 400 or 500 5 number groups, but being in a nice, warm
radio shack during a rain storm or snow storm was a decent payback for the boring stuff. Regards.

LOL. I copied the message before it poofed. Did Sean answer your question? You can't just tease someone and walk away. Girls get a reputation for that sort of thing!
