Although morse has been more or less discontinued in a professional
context, radio amateurs are active users of morse code. It gives me a kick every
time I am able to receive and send morse code, something which a
digital 'black box' never can give. The fact that morse has been
replaced by satellites, internet and digital communications is as
relevant as the replacement of horse transport by cars, sail boats
by motor boats or bicycles by motor cycles. People still ride, sail and
bike ... and use morse!
