Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
Might this be John Pershing
DAG.That is not it.PJM
OK, I have to make a quick road trip to buffalo gap. I will check the contest en route when I can and when I get back.Good luck!PJM
Buffalo Gap? Is that a store where texans go to buy jeans and western shirts?
--. ..- --. .-.. .. . .-.. -- --- / -- .- .-. -.-. --- -. ..I don't want to give it away too soon. I am going to go listen to the radio now and see if someone else can guess as well. No I didn't say Sam Morris.
I'll be surprised if Anonymous isn't correct.
If I could only read Morris Code, i'd know what Sheldon guessed.Where could Roger &Nate be?
Wow! Sheldon is right. Congratualtions.
Definitely not DeGaulle (lacks the nose and that's not a French uniform). I'd watch Sheldon's answer.--. --- --- -.. .--- --- -... ... .... . .-.. -.. --- -.John
I concur. Sheldon has a winner..although it did take me a few minutes to "decode" his answer. Ha! Nice play, Sheldon!
Grand Moff Tarkin. XD
Well I just got home, and the guys name is Samuel Morse. Not Morris, and it is the Morse Code.And Nate is up in the mountains today.
I'm not sure about my Morse code, but I think Sheldon said GUGLIELMO / MARNNONand then Johm said GOOD JOB SHELDON
Well, I once could read Morris Code, but gave it up to concentrate on my Morse Dancing. I was thinking in the shower this morning that PJM has enriched my life with this website...photos and stories and links...Thank you, Mr. PJM, your eminence, sir.
What an interesting route the comments took today! Very entertaining! :)
Well RDT, you were close with the translation. One more hint, his sister invented a salad that uses small pasta.
I had to look twice, but that him, for sure! I had not seen that picture of him before. He's a local hero here in St. John's Newfoundland.I hope this is suggesting the theme coming up for this week.Oh yes, I can read the code, but it is harder for me to translate visually as I'm used to hearing it.Graham
If someone said Guglielmo Marconi, that is correct. I don't have the time to go through the Morse code.If that's what you said, Sheldon, congrats!
So it's not Samuel Morse?
Got back from Buffalo Gap to find that Sheldon was the winner. Our first winner to enter the contest in Morse Code. Nice touch, Sheldon, and then nice touch from john Morse coding him back.When I got back from Buffalo Gap, we had a thunderstorm that knocked out the internet. Got an inch of rain, which is the most significant rainstorm in a LONG time here.PJM
Lets hope that is the start of the rainy season now.
I had the fortune to meet Mr. Marconi's daughter back in 2001, when we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the first transatlantic radio transmission here in St. John's. Meeting her was really amazing to a long time radio ham.To modern society, Mr. Marconi is as singnificant an individual as Steve Jobs (and I'm not taking anything away from Mr. Jobs).Graham
