As far as I know commercial morse services never tried to use the
code for printing.
Wildly OT- but in fact- machine printing morse systems predated most
other variants of machine printing telegraphy. These were, of course,
wireline systems, not radio link based. The mechanics of the last
generation of page (as opposed to tape) printing systems were
incredible. Among some of the 'museum' stuff I have here, there is a
GNT morse transmitter (Wheatstone pattern) that uses pre-punched paper
tape and can operate at well over 200 wpm.
