    Can you identify this well-known show tune from the Morse code pattern?




    This might be a tricky one - try a key/keyer speed of about 15 wpm. I will put in a clue if nobody gets it.

    This came from me hearing this song after having done a bit of CW...

    Correct Louis! Very first guess - I am impressed! The code isn't massively accurate - ideally I would have slightly cheated and used some Russian code characters.

    I wonder how many CW people are musical? That probably helps.

    I am sorta musical and always loved CW - but I am rusty, so jumping into CW contests in S&P mode to get my speed back up...

    I'm a semi-pro musician all my life ... and was going to comment that I can't tell what song it is without a time signature! I can hear the song only if I pretend to have a really bad fist and lousy spacing. LOL

    OK - if I had said it was in 3/4 time that might have helped?
