In 1832 Samuel F.B. Morse, a professor of painting and sculpture at the University of the City of New York (later New York University), became interested in the possibility of electric telegraphy and made sketches of ideas for such a system. In 1835 he devised a system of dots and dashes to represent letters and numbers. In 1837 he was granted a patent on an electromagnetic telegraph. Morse’s original transmitter incorporated a device called a portarule, which employed molded type with built-in dots and dashes. The type could be moved through a mechanism in such a manner that the dots and dashes would make and break the contact between the battery and the wire to the receiver. The receiver, or register, embossed the dots and dashes on an unwinding strip of paper that passed under a stylus. The stylus was actuated by an electromagnet turned on and off by the signals from the transmitter.
Now that being said we have came a long way in Frequency Communication. Now almost everything we have today has become digital, Analog is becoming a thing of the past. Yes there are ups and downs to both. I would much prefer Analog sound over digital. That is just me though. I am grateful for digital because you are able to link up and listen to this episode because of digital. On the other hand; I believe that we all need to remember that it was not long ago perhaps a lifetime ago we were there in this time of dimension of our great ancestors where dealing with what I speak of in this episode. All that I can say is be Right Here, Right Now. In the moment. Due to the fact today we all have it much easier then they did back then. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/interstellarfrequency/message
