    Now and then my DL-YL Marion, aka "The Artist", drags me into Hobby Lobby for supplies. I like to tease her and the staff that what we want might be found next to the artifacts looted from the Middle East. :rolleyes:

    However the other day this item with an amateur radio theme caught my eye and thought y'all might find it interesting too (or at least the description). Sure wish they had a RadioShack Express in the store like HobbyTown does too!

    Morse Code Alphabet Chart Wall Decor

    If you grew up in a military family, you know the lingo by heart. Morse Code Alphabet Chart Wall Decor features the NATO phonetic alphabet - the twenty-six code words assigned to each letter of the English alphabet - as well as their Morse code counterparts, printed in white font across a gray canvas.

    The canvas is stretched between two wooden dowels that boast a black color, and a rope is adorned to the top so you can hang it along your wall.

    The HL folks have some nice wooden boxes to hold your para-set.

    Reviewers of this product have noted that F is incorrectly represented as a U in Morse Code..........

    Correct me if I am wrong, but the code for the letter F does not look right.

    No, the "F" is correct.

    But other than being a nice radio room decoration, I don't really see the point. Morse is an aural language much more so than a visual one [queue the semaphore/signal light crowd to chime in and tell me how wrong I am ;)]

    Whenever I see Morse "written" I have to whistle what I see so I can hear it. I copy CW at up to 30-40 WPM (depending on context) with my ears - but reading one sentence written out would take quite some time.
