    Morse Code Man

    McLean, Va. (WUSA*9)–:  Computers and cell phones have become the norm of communication.  What would happen if we faced a catastrophic emergency or lost our electrical grid, making our phones and computers useless?  Who would come to our rescue?   Well, as it turns out, there are thousands of Americans who still know how to communicate like we did in the 1800’s.

    From his home in McLean, Jim Talens, N3JT, doesn’t look like a superhero. But, in the event of a major catastrophe, it’s people like Jim who will come to our rescue.

    At one time, the best way to get information across the United States was by horse.  But, a 180 years ago Morse Code changed everything.
