That's right, today, in Massachusetts, the famous co-inventor of Morse Code was born.
Hams either loved the Code or hated it. There's two versions of Code. The American Morse Code is different from the International Morse Code. The latter is the Code what ham radio operators use.
What are you doing to celebrate the birth of the man who helped invent the Code? Nothing? Well, it's Babe Ruth Day today then.
