If you feel like procrastinating:
Step 1: Say “Dit” & “Dah” a few times in your head. Dit dit dah dit dit dah dah diiiiiit ♪ ♫
Step 2: Learn that every letter from the alphabet is a combination of Dits and Dahs. Dit and Dah are the sounds you will hear when you’re communicating in morse code.
Step 3: Since we’re doing this shiz visually (you’re at work.) learn that Dit is a circle and Dah is a rectangle that could fit 3 circles inside it.
Step 4: memorize all a diiiis.
Handy for when you get kidnapped: SOS is … _ _ _ … (dididit dadadah dididit)
Step 5: My god, you my friend are a bored one. Ok, here’s what i did to memorize them:
What the internet tells you (these are cool):
The rest is here.
What I did (I think I fancy myself an expert now):
Learned my name: Y A R A (wrote each letter in a row on my notebook)
Y _ . _ _ Memorised this mnemonically
A . _ Ax: I wanted this to look like an ax but it seriously doesn’t, but it does look like the long rectangle is an axe hitting the tiny human that is the dot.
R . _ . Couldn’t find a way to memorize it so I was stunned. Stunned . _ .
A . _ Ax! Ax! Ax!
Every letter has a different logic in my head using different methods, find your preferred way and stick to it or mix them all together. Start with your name though, then your last name and go from there.
Step 6: Start practicing and turning sentences into dits and dahs and google audio morse code and translate it on paper. Try doing hello world (solution below)
Step 7: Learn how numbers work and how to capitalise and proper spacing (I had lost interest at that point and thought numbers were too mathy for my taste.)
Point is it’s sort of not rocket science, and I’m in marketing fyi.
