Morse Code and the Phonetic Alphabets

I couldn't find the Morse code anywhere on the net so I thought I would type it in along with some of the World's phonetic alphabets.

Brian Kelk of Cambridge has compiled a far larger collection of phonetic alphabets, there is a full version and a brief version.

The alphabet that the British emergency services use is the NATO one.

If you want to translate quickly to or from Morse code use the Morse Code Translator.

In the Morse Code there also exist codes for numbers and punctuation:

1	 .----     Full-stop (period)	   .-.-.-
2	 ..---	   Comma		   --..--
3	 ...--	   Colon		   ---...
4	 ....-	   Question mark (query)   ..--..
5	 .....     Apostrophe		   .----.
6	 -....	   Hyphen		   -....-
7	 --...     Fraction bar		   -..-. 
8	 ---..	   Brackets (parentheses)  -.--.-
9	 ----.	   Quotation marks	   .-..-.
0	 -----

If the duration of a dot is taken to be one unit then that of a dash is three units. The space between the components of one character is one unit, between characters is three units and between words six units (five for automatic transmission). To indicate that a mistake has been made and for the receiver to delete the last word send ........ (eight dots).
