I'm not an expert in Morse, nor I have handwritten that code by hand ( Pheeww, kinda log,boring,error prone activity )

I attached the link at the end of the message :

http://www.scphillips.com/morse/inde...se/jtrans.html

It is the link to a TEXT/MORSE - MORSE/TEXT translator.

If u go to that page you can write a sentence and have the conversion in Morse code.
You can also listen to the Audio Code at different WPM !!!

Or, you can put a MORSE code in that translator ( with words separated by / (that's the reason why I put them into my message ) ) and see the text translation.

Puck M, than you very much : QSL for your P.M. ( do u say it in this way ? )
I'll P.M. back to you

For even more totally useless trivia, there is a legend about the venerable British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) during WWII.

The letter V is of course, ...- in morse.
Those are the first notes of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony (Dah dah dah DAAA..).

During WWII, the BBC's opening music was Beethhoven's Fifth as a means of honoring the goal of Victory over the Axis powers. Churchill as always flashed the "V" with his fingers to also symbolize Victory.

Yes, true.

In Italy listening to BBC was a clandestin activity during the fascist regime. ( Radio's use to come out with blocked frequencies in order not to listen to foreign Radios !)

BBC (Radio Londra has it was called in Italy) used to send special transmission in italian , "Messaggi Speciali" ("special messages") .
All of them were beginning with the famous Beethoven Dah dah dah DAAA...
Those messages were italian coded messages for italian partisan during the last years of WWII related to guerrilla activities against the nazists ( The Italian Resistence )

You can listen to them as well to the original Dah dah dah DAAA... ( going back to 60 years ago ) if u have Real Player installed :

Dah dah dah DAAA... Parla Londra, trasmettiamo alcuni messaggi speciali Felice non e' Felice, E' cessata la pioggia, la mia barba e' bionda, ....
