Writer’s Strike: Day 5

(Today, we had to really dig for a substitute writer. We went back and found a guy named George who is a HAM radio operator. We hope you enjoy his Ping.)

Here’s a little known fact om when your co-ping eae ryan was in high schooi, he briefly toyed with the idea of getting a ham radio license. he was going to get a ?o bt code license so that he didn’t have to learn morse code, ben bothered taking a test. th well.

I’m missing some characters in the “blue zone.” Since I was a Morse intercept operator for many years I thought this was going to be a breeze. NUT UHHH. I had to hear the dits and dahs in my head to make sense of it.

By the way, it’s easier to read if you do it like this.
-.-./../.-/—//…/-/./…-/.//.-//

On slash between characters, two between words.

Brilliant!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
