    Ok all you Morse coders out there, you have a new character to learn.

    The International Telecommunication Union has added the @ symbol to the morse codeset.


    It's a combination of the a + c characters:


    .--.-.

    Well I guess the ITU needed something new to do.
    Its still easier and shorter to send "at (@)" as ._ _ and not ._ _._. I usually dont give my e-mail address over CW /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Wonder why they didn't use (a + t) instead of (a + c). After all it's the word "at" that they are trying to represent. Not ac... That's for when it gets hot.
