Andy, I am hoping to get a slot like that to describe the keying and
readout device which are intended to meet a "green" agenda being in the
case of the latter instrument a low energy electrostatic device for
home construction using bits of pencil, knitting needle, cotton thread
and strips of aluminium foil - all components not to be found in
"appliances".

Your dual tone proposal is an excellent idea but suffers from one
major drawback for LF.  Being a dual tone sysytem, it requires a
linear transmitter.   If you could adapt the scheme to a single tone
only version, say by using two adjacent time slots, that would
overcome the linearity problem.  Listeners woud then have to remeber
teh position of teh first slot and mentally place this with the tone
of the second one.

Subject for a future Data column perhaps.   Most slots are filled, but
April 2009 may be available ;-)

Hi All,
I am inviting comments on a new mode that might help to satisfy both
the
"traditionalists" and the hankerers after new technology.

My project is based on the visual semaphore but using a two tone
system to
define the positions of the flags. The frequency of each tone would
define
the angular position of each flag. Ideally, the sending speed would
bear a
relationship to the sender's speech rhythms and would therefore be
almost
infinitely variable as between characters but have a mean speed
suitable to
the allowed bandwidth thereby giving the equivalent of "fist". A
"space"
tone between characters would be a fixed frequency to be used as a
pilot
tone allowing synchronisation of tone detectors.

I intend to call this system "Interupted Pilot Tone Dual Frequency
Modulated
Continuous Wave Semaphore Equivalent Signalling Telegraphy" or
IPTDFMCWSEST"
!

So may we please now end all these silly arguments about "appliance
operators" while I return to local ragchews on my frequency modulated
dishwasher and loaded dipolar strimmer!

As far as I know commercial morse services never tried to use the
morse
code for printing.

For printing the teletype machines have been invented, a technology
with
allows many additional features to be designed, a process still
ongoing.
Therefore I would recommend everybody not willing to learn the morse
code to follow the examples of commercial teletypers. But everybody
may
do what he thinks would make him happy.

As I have grown up with the morse code I find it fully sufficient for
what I have to communicate over radio, to keep technology simple. I
guess I would never had come to amateur radio around 1950 if I had to
struggle with complex communication modes as featured today.

Some
