Abstract : Recently, a project at Massachusettes Institute of Technology's Laboratory for Computer Science has developed a new perspective on the manual Morse code problem. The authors have taken quite seriously the character of manual Morse code as expressed by the first sentence of this paper. Indeed their approach has been to include in a manual Morse code system extensive models or knowledge of the Morse, radio and natural language domains. Further, understanding of parts of a Morse code conversation is attempted, and it appears that it is necessary to understand some parts of what is transmitted in order to translate it correctly.
