Hey Santee, if I suggest a topic on this forum, and you do it, does it rate a mail sack drop in the video?

Don't have any suggestions right now.  Just thought I'd ask.

Thank you both. I have did one early one about dynamite, but may re-hash that in a mining video soon. 

 

Put this one on the books!

Howdy Santee, love the telegraph vid!

Might mention that with modern Morse Code, it's a series of tones -- a long tone for a dash (or dah), short tone for a dot (dit) ...

In period, in the Old West, it was a series of clicks.

One click for a dot, two clicks close together for a dash.

There's a ham radio term -- "lid" -- for a suboptimal operator, and this dates back to the Old West telegraph.

You'll remember the oval Prince Albert tobacco tins... if an empty tin is lodged behind the telegraph sounder, it acts as an amplifier; add sand to the can, to an optimal level (this changes the pitch) and helps the increasingly hard of hearing operator continue to earn a wage.

The tin's lid was left thrown back -- from this, the term "lid" ... it became a term of contempt, indicating a less than optimal telegraph operator, kind of like calling a kid with glasses "Four Eyes."

As Paul Harvey used to say, "For what it's worth."
