The Morse Telegraph Club

Do you have an interest in the history of telegraphy and the telegraph industry?

Are you interested in the history of telecommunications?

If so, you are cordially invited to join the Morse Telegraph Club.

    The Morse Telegraph Club was founded in 1943 to perpetuate the history of telegraphy.

Its membership consists of retired railroad and commercial telegraphers, former telegraph industry employees, radio operators and others with an interest in the history of telegraphy.

    In addition to publishing a Quarterly Journal entitled "Dots and Dashes," MTC members assist with the design and construction of historically accurate museum exhibits throughout the United States and Canada.

Members present talks on the history of telegraphy and telecommunications for historical associations, engineering societies, Amateur Radio clubs and the like. MTC members also demonstrate Morse telegraphy at steam train excursions, US Civil War encampments, historical events and the like.

    MTC membership is open to anyone with an interest in the history of telecommunications.

One may join one of the many local chapters throughout the United States and Canada or become a member of the MTC "Grand Chapter" (members at large).

    If you are a former commercial telegrapher with experience in railroad operations, stock brokerage work, commodities work (boards of trade, cotton exchanges, etc.), pipeline, press or other phases of telegraphy, you will meet other operators with similar backgrounds.

If you worked in testing and regulating for organizations such as Western Union, Canadian National, CP Telegraphs or AT&T, you will enjoy the opportunity to re-establish connections with others who performed similar work.

Radio amateurs, former maritime or military radio operators, and others will enjoy learning more about the history of telecommunications and the origins of many of the procedures and traditions with which they are familiar.

    Please take a look at a sample copy of "Dots and Dashes" at:

    A membership application may be found at:

While trying to set N1MM+ for BARTG HF, my Kaspersky antivirus detected the worm Win32.LockScreen,,,,,,,,,

in the file, which caused me to have to uninstall the program completely, losing much of the configurations data accumulated in the time I had using the software .

After download and reinstalling the full instaler and the last version again, and activate virus search with the same antivirus, again found the same worm, in the same file, and remouve the worm except this time it did not stop and the program work properly.

Some user had this problem before with or I have to interpret that this dangerous worm infection (according web information) comes from other files out N1MM+ ??

Would appreciate any info to help me clarify this situation.

This was almost certainly a false positive.

The latest update has been downloaded more than 4000 times without a single virus report from a user until now, so the odds are overwhelmingly that it is a false report from your anti-virus program.

73, Rich VE3KI



It is not unusual for anti-virus programs to report false positives.

If this happens again, refer to the >Documents >FAQ >Installing and Upgrading N1MM Logger instructions found here:

Hello fellow Sideswipers, Homebrew Cootie
This came in the mail today.

It could use a serious cleaning but I don't know if I want to do that.

The armature is a hacksaw blade that has had the teeth smoothed out.

Over the armature is a piece of round steel stock that was slotted to fit over the hacksaw blade.

The finger pieces appear to be bamboo?
Unknown if it was built by a ham or commercial RO.
A neat piece of radio history.
