What is the proper (and most efficient) technique for creating Morse code by hand, using a manual Morse code key? Ham radio operators find Morse code (and the 'CW' mode, or 'Continuous Wave' keying mode) very useful, even though Morse code is no longer required as part of the licensing process. Morse code is highly effective in weak-signal radio work. And, preppers love Morse code because it is the most efficient way to communicate when there is a major disaster that could wipe out the communications infrastructure.
While this military film is antique, the vintage information is timeless, as the material is applicable to Morse code, even today.

In this video, I briefly introduce some of the type of signals I hear on my high-frequency (shortwave) amateur radio. Some of them are voice transmissions, and some are data. This video is simply the initial teaser for many videos to come. And, it served as an experiment in my editing two video sources and a third audio source, using Adobe Premier CC 2014 software.
