If Baudot is "ancient," what is "Morse code?"
The link changes, ya know
Best to post a screen capture rather than the link... the question is no longer the same. It now takes you to what you see below - regarding AGC. (Accidental Grid Cooling - everyone knows that! Heck - it's not even an option!!)
No, it actually doesn't.
That's the link to the quiz containing the question about which I was commenting. You just have to work the quiz to get to the question.
But since you insist...
how old is it?
how many signals have succeeded it over the years?
is there any possibility the inventor is alive and coherent?
Yeah, I disagreed with that one too. Baudot refers both the encoding scheme and the speed. Now abbreviated to simply "baud or baud rate". I just do the trivia for fun, but it stings a bit when they cannot even spell things correctly. Thanks to QRZ, I now know Montanna is spelled that way for example.
I always refer to it as 'steam RTTY', so 'ancient' is appropriate.
