Samuel Morse demonstrated the ability of a telegraph system to transmit information in 1837. The information was sent as a series of electrical signals along wires. 


Morse code characters are made up of short signals (referred to as dots or dits) and long signals (referred to as dashes and dahs).  With the introduction of radio communications, a modified version of Morse code became used world wide.
