Place your text in order of importance

Basic Morse code could be additional skills to add. When you’re regularly sending long strings of text (also called “messages”), it can be hard to keep track of how many there are. It also becomes difficult when you want to send them back again because you have no idea what something will look like written down on paper.

This is why people develop their own messaging systems. You place all of your important messages in a certain area (like your inbox) so that they can be read easily and quickly. Then when you have something new to tell someone, you quickly write this message instead of spending time trying to figure out what word should go where.

You may say that tweets are for keeping up with things rapidly as they happen, but emails require more effort. They call for better writing skills and longer conversations.

Place your email messages in an order of importance and then save the most urgent ones for first. That way if you get a response soon enough, it will be quicker than if you wait until last to hear from the person.

Separate messages with dashes

Digital signals (phones, email) send information as waves of air. When you call someone on the phone, the sound from your mouth to their ears is roughly audible.

If you were to hold a microphone right next to the ear canal of this person, you would be able to hear several different sounds. You’d first see “voicemail” or “incoming voice message” followed by a moment of silence before the ringing of the telephone. This ring signal carries the caller ID data which tells you who it is that you are trying to reach.

You can try using the code names for all the various signals used for calling each other. For example, let’s say you wanted to make an emergency signal-should someone need help. Or maybe you want to use the silent alarm if something bad happens.

The classic signal for helping people is two short flashes, separated by a long flash. The long flash is typically one digit from the decimal number system; two digits combined is ten. Sometimes extensions have included additional flashes to identify more numbers.

For example, the double-flash mark for testing smoke detectors is eight minutes long. And the 9-1-1 pattern is four seconds long. Visit the internet for detailed explanations and digital images of how these signals look when photographed.

Identify The Sender

There are several ways to identify the senders of messages, but they all rely on you being able to read handwriting. Handwriting is difficult to interpret when samples from each side get closer together, so there’s no exact science to determining who wrote a given script.

However, we can make some assumptions about personality and gender. A person who writes with an even hand tends to be decisive and strong-willed, while someone who’s writing is slimmer has probably yielded more to others in the past.

A man’s handwriting is often shorter and simpler than that of a woman. If it’s feminine, the writing is sometimes longer and simpler, but it can still be identified as coming from a female source.

If something doesn’t look right to you, then consider if it was likely written by its owner or if it could have been stolen at a market.

Keep in mind that people trying to fool other people use pen names for many reasons (you might know someone who changes her name for family reasons). People also change their handwriting decades ago, so don’t think those using handwritten letters are immune.

These are just some things to keep in mind when it comes to identifying the writers of symbols. There are a few hard and fast rules for this chart. I hope it helps!

Learn the Basics Morse Code

It’s often said that failure is part of success because you should learn as much from your failures as you do from your successes. If you want to achieve something big, then you need to be willing to try and fail.

The way things usually go with trying to succeed in life is that you end up learning less from each attempt you make at success. You will keep making attempts until death comes for me or you get some kind of successful result.

You have to put yourself out there and fail so you can move forward and find ways to successfully treat those failure moments as lessons.

Here are all kinds of examples we can use to show how failing works:

Failing an exam means that you lose credit, dropping your grade only by one level. Failing a test leads to quitting the course, which is a more significant loss.

However, both events serve as opportunities to learn from the experience. When you re-take the same class either spooked or inspired, you do it after taking time to process your last mistake.

This adds new skills to your toolbox and boosts your confidence for the future. These are what help you move forwards in life.

Practice With A Phone

It may seem crazy, but you can actually learn to code by using your smartphone. There is a number of learning app that will help you practice the basics on your phone.

There is no better way to learn than by doing. So, get some friends or family members who want to learn together and have at it.

Yes, there are lots of ‘how-to’ videos on YouTube, but this is only helpful if you already know what things look like. For example, most people don’t know how to make a call when they first wake up in the morning!

The best way to learn a new skill is by making mistakes while practicing. You will go back and repeat things until you understand them. Then once you do, you won’t forget.

Consider getting a mobile device for training purposes. Not all phones come with digital keyboards (some old phones do not), so check out other features before you buy one.

Decide what software you plan to use and whether any existing programs will be useful for you. Many businesses now offer their own apps for employees to manage schedules, reports, etc.

These can also work well as employee handbooks.

Use A Code Book

Even if you aren’t planning to communicate via distress signals, it is helpful to know the format of a code book. This helps make messages more readable and understandable, which can be critical when there is so much noise in communications

Code books are sections of letters where letters or words change their spelling for specific groups of letters. For example, the word “hello” would be spelled HE-LO in one section, while in another section it would be written HA-LIL. By using different codes, many messages could be abbreviated efficiently.

There are several code books available that contain all the common codes. Most military organizations (e.g., coast guard, navy, air force) have their own set of code books. Some of these cover not only Morse code but also technical symbols and diagrams.

Know the Time Zone of the Receiver

This is very important if you are trying to send someone a code because they may not know what time it is in their area. By knowing the time zone, you can calculate how early or late your message has for them.

If you try to send them a code at midnight, but it’s lunchtime where they are, there’s no way they will receive it by midnight. They would probably get back to you before that.

It also helps when you are sending messages frequently as well. You do not want to be sending 12 characters right after another character, you want some space between them.

That will make your message harder to decode by anyone but someone with an immediate understanding of code. That knowledge comes only through practice though.

Be aware of the Direction

If you’re tapping, that is, pressing down on the key as opposed to hitting it with your finger, you should be conscious of the directions in which the message is going.

If you are sending dots and dashes, for example, you need to be mindful of whether they will come from right to leave or left to right.

Most people default to doing dots first (i.e., coming from left to right) and then dealing with dahs; however, there are instances where putting dah’s before dots gets closer to the correct way. People are also born with preferences about which direction they prefer to use, so maybe ask yourself what that preference is.

It can also help to know the difference between dahs and dits. A dit is a single tap/hit, while a dash is a double hit. Hence, getting two signals at once.

Dah is like a single letter ‘a’, whereas a di-bite is like an asterisk ‘^’, which is why I said before that you could think of them as signal letters if you didn’t want to get to hung up on the symbol itself.

Here’s a fun fact: The same thing applying to words applies to sentences. Too many people end up using modals instead of phrases. Phrases give us more freedom because they are generalizations rather than.
