Very neat article by Stephen Moss in the UK Guardian Newspaper available online:

One had assumed that Morse code’s last hurrah (that’s ···· ··- ·-· … oh, life’s just too short) had been in about 1944. But one had assumed wrong. The writer Alan Sillitoe, who trained as a wireless operator in the second world war, this week revealed that he still practises taking Morse every day, listening to chatter across the airwaves, including a French station that broadcasts poetry in Morse.

So how much Morse, in iambic pentameters or otherwise, is out there?
