Here's the American Morse Code (as opposed to International or
sometimes called Continental Code).

American Morse was formerly used on overland telegraph lines in the
US and Canada.

Note the I've used = to indicate a long dash; there were actually
three elements to this code: a dot, a short dash, and a long dash.
Both L and 0 use identical elements: a long dash.

Note that some letters, such as C, contain a space between their
elements.

A .- K -.- U ..- 5 ---
B -... L = V ...- 6 ......
C .. . M -- W .-- 7 --..
D -.. N -. X .-.. 8 -....
E . O . . Y .. .. 9 -..-
F .-. P ..... Z ... . 0 =
G --. Q ..-. 1 .--. , .-.-
H .... R . .. 2 ..-.. . ..--..
I .. S ... 3 ...-. & . ...
J -.-. T - 4 ....-

I wonder if there's ever been a net on the ham bands where the
fellows used American Morse; Bob, NA4G, any ideas?
