November's HAMs salutes veterans

Hi Folks,
Call it Veterans Day, Remembrance Day, or Poppy Day, Nov. 11 holds a special place in the pantheon of annual national holidays -- a time to
honor those who have served in their countries' armed forces.

At least 20 countries around the world celebrate the day.

With best regards.

Morse code announced to be Immaterial World Heritage by UNESCO

The chairman of the VERON , Remy Denker PA3AGF, has guided the Netherlands as the first country in the world that managed to get Morse Code protected by the UNESCO as immaterial world cultural heritage.

Belgium (ON) will follow soon.

Morse code announced to be Immaterial World Heritage by UNESCO

(It is now becoming an internationally protected invisible resource!)

I wonder if we could get the ARRL or IARU or some National USA body to sign on to this excellent idea that PROTECTS Morse Code as an international resource?!

Spread the word!

Brian Carling, Radio AF4K


Brian, It is not "Immaterial World (Cultural) Heritage" (bad translation of the French word "immatėriel"), the correct English term is "Intangible Cultural Heritage". To understand what it means and what participating nations agree to do, this is the text of the convention:

Very important difference.

In fact, when this was first posted, I thought it was a joke.
Full Definition of IMMATERIAL

1 : not consisting of matter : incorporeal at:

2 : of no substantial consequence : unimportant at:

in·tan·gi·ble adjective \(ˌ)in-ˈtan-jə-bəl\

: not made of physical substance : not able to be touched : not tangible

Thank you for the clarification

Which Morse code referred to?

There is the Original American Morse code (Morse Code) and the International Morse code (CW).

There are also a large number of countries bound Morse codes.

For example:

Rssian Morse code

Greek Morse code

Hebrew Morse code

Arabic Morse code

Japanese Morse code

Korean Morse code and

US Navy Morse code

See attachment pse.

Probably intended they the International Morse code / Continental Morse code (CW).

But the Original American code (Morse Code) is also still in use see my PLL Nr. 361

Hello friends, Electromechanical fist by Hidehiko - JA9MAT
For those of us who are affected by the "glass arm" syndrome, if the worst comes to the worst, an artificial fist might be the solution ;-). Have a look at this very interesting video by Hidehiko - JA9MAT:

A very clever and nifty assembly Hidehiko, congratulations! I'm looking forward to meeting you or your electromechanical pal on the air. Keep up the good work my friend.
Have a nice Sunday folks, BCNU.
