Description

Corse Mode: for Straight Key and Electronics There are numerous strikingly significant similarities between morse code and text-messaging/internet lingo. Both are coded representations of [and are dependent upon] existing languages; both compress the textual message through acronyms and contractions of frequently used word/phrases; both resulted from the advent of a technological telecommunication advancement; both were products of constraints (small frequency bandwidth and low RF power as well as character limits); finally, both are modes for [nearly] instant communication across long distances. The text (intentionally omitted from the program notes) is coded twice: First the word (for example 'Text') is translated into text-messaging/internet lingo (TXT), which is then translated into morse code (- -..- -).
