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
