If you appetite to apprentice Morse cipher and you don’t accept a teacher, you’d allegedly aloof arch over to a website or download a buzz app. Before that, you allegedly bought a cassette band or a phonograph record. But how did you apprentice Morse if you didn’t accept any of that and didn’t apperceive anyone who could accelerate you practice? Sure, you could accept to the radio, but in 1939 that ability be difficult, abnormally to acquisition bodies sending apathetic abundant for you to copy.
Wireless World for August 3rd, 1939, has the acknowledgment in an commodity by [A. R. Knipe] on folio 109. While you allegedly wouldn’t use it today, it is a abundant archetype of how able you can be aback you don’t accept an Arduino and all the added accoutrements we booty for accepted today.
A Little Help From Your Friends
The abstraction was to body article so that your friend, your mom, or your little sister could be imposed aloft to accelerate cipher to you alike admitting they didn’t apperceive it. From the article:
The greatest affliction to the acquirements of Morse is assuredly the abridgement of a accomplished abettor to assignment the key so that able accepting convenance may be obtained.
The accessory independent a buzzer and a array forth with terminals for a key. Across the key admitting were two connections. One went to a “signal plate” fabricated of assumption or tin. This bowl sat on a baseboard and aloft the bowl were strips of wood. The added affiliation goes to a stylus which could be annihilation added than a allotment of wire captivated up.
Under the strips of copse is a arrangement fabricated of cardboard or authority bolt which is — allegedly — some array of oil-treated bolt acclimated as an insulator. The arrangement has holes in it agnate to anniversary letter. The being sending you the convenance cipher artlessly moves the stylus over the appropriate allotment of the arrangement application the copse strips as a guide.
Pros and Cons
Almost anyone could body article like this. You could allegedly use atom wood, wire, and metal. You’d accept to buy the array and maybe the buzzer. But this would accept been able-bodied aural the abstruse capabilities of alike a adolescent being in 1939. With the able use of screws you allegedly didn’t alike charge to solder.
Obviously, there are some limitations to this method. The acceleration could be blotchy if you don’t do a nice abiding coast above the stencil. The agreement amid characters is allegedly activity to be aberrant as your abettor searches for the abutting letter.

There’s additionally affluence of cipher convenance assets around. But if you didn’t accept that, this would break your problem.
Other Training Aids
This reminded us of the Omnigraph which was a accepted way to apprentice cipher way aback in 1904 and beyond. These acclimated a clockwork bounce and a metal deejay (effectively a cam) to accomplish contacts.
The aggressive had a abundant absorption in training Morse cipher operators at one time. They had machines that acclimated active cardboard band like the TG-34-A in the video below. There was additionally the Instructograph (second video).
It is adamantine to bethink aback alive Morse cipher was a hot job accomplishment and not aloof a hobby. Then again, if telegraph faxing had bent on, all those operators would accept been out of assignment alike sooner. Of course, Morse ability still appear in accessible if you get kidnapped. If you appetite to apprentice the sending part, the aggressive blur beneath ability not be your best bet, but it is entertaining.
