Morse & Semaphore

Morse Resources

WEBSITEhttps://morsecode.scphillips.com/translator.html

This website can help you quickly turn a typed message into Morse code. This website is extremely convenient that will save you time when you need to teach a lesson on Morse.

Each letter is separated by a slight space, and each word is separated by a “/”.

For lesson planning, just copy and paste the Morse code message into your lesson planning document.

Cons – I do not recommend using the sound and light options on the website (sound and light options go too fast when transmitting the message, so I would recommend just using your whistle and transmit the message at your own pace.

Semaphore Resources

This website can help you turn a message into Semaphore.

The amazing part about this website is that there is an option to generate Semaphore messages either looking at you or turning its back on you.

When you teach Semaphore, it is much easier to directly look at the “turning its back on you” option so that you can directly copy the angles of the Semaphore letters when you transmit a message. See the below image.

You can also copy and paste the results to a document (for your reference, or for quizzes / tests).
