    The Telegrapher’s Trilogy has been made available free of charge at the Internet Archive and consists of three short stories, linked through time and characters by the communication code invented by Samuel Morse in 1844.

    The story begins in the Southwestern US with the “The Telegrapher of Canyon Diablo”, moves forward with “The Perkinsville Station” and culminates in “Nate Goes to War”.

    Amateur radio figures heavily in the third part and telegraphy is the common theme throughout.

    The time period spans from the late 1800’s through World War II and captures the spread of the railroad in the Southwest and the telegraph that made safe and timely travel possible.

    I am K7ZB, the author and the work is copyrighted. The trilogy is available in PDF, etc, on the Internet Archive here:

    An example of American Morse code and what it sounds like on a vintage railroad sounder is shown in the youtube video.
