Has anyone listened to the Glenn Beck radio program and heard the Morse Code at the beginning? I'm way too bad at code to be able to translate it.

Can anybody tell me what it says?

Thanks guys.

Here's the link I listen to him on. The Morse Code is played coming back into the show after the top of each hour.

There's a ListenLive link on the page.

Thanks dude. I can see that you're REAL ham, so I'm sure you'll get it.

Greetings FL Techie:

I did a little searching and found the Morse Code clip you are talking about. You can listen to it here (yeah, a weird domain name, but Norton thinks it's safe to visit):

http://gb.thescrewedgeneration.com/gbptheme2008.mp3

Anyone care to translate? I could do it by listening 100 times, but surely there is a 50 WPM codemeister out there who can do it in one shot.

I think the first part is "BCFEI0UBC0...," but I loose it after that. If I missed a "dit" after the first letter, then it could be "BECK... and then a 0..."

:idea:

BCUTA0WBC031950 then gets covered by the "sponsored by" voice.
except where I type a U is actually a U with dots over it. Some European character. In English ..- is U in this audio clip it is ..-- which is the U with dots.

When chatting with hams in Sweden for example, they may use some of the characters we don't know in English. I just ignore those characters but still get the message. Just as if I mispell Blatt-nb-rg-r our brain does the error correction for us.

Almost every time you hear Morse in a movie or on the radio etc it is just 5 letter code groups.

In the movie "Enemy of the State" I think it was, I burst out laughing in the movie theatre because when Hollywood showed a satellite in space it was accompanied by " CQ " ! ! ! ! ! !

Thanks wbpjtk (& Kirt for finding the audio link)!.

So it looks like the Morse Code is just random stuff? I guess it was just put in to sound cool.

Cheers :salut:

I was listening to the Glenn Back show when some guy called in claiming to have been a high speed Morse Code operator in WWII. According to him, the translation is:

BC Ü TA0WBC 031950 Ü OFFSHORE RATER I

Supposedly the Ü is a linefeed (or break) character, so this might be a teletype message meant to look like this:

BC
TA0WBC 031950
OFFSHORE RATER I


Glenn Beck himself has said that he has no idea wht it says; he and his producer randomply pickked it out of some sound effects that they had on-hand.

I am a morse code expert. I am not bragging, but it is a totally useless skill I acquired while I was in the Army Security Agency. Here is the translation of the morse code from Glenn Beck's lead in

BC (break)TA0WBC (Note: I think this may be a call sign) (break) 031950 (Note: I think this is a date 03/19/50)
OFFSHORE ..there is more but I can't hear it.

If anyone needs morse translation, just send me a mp3 file and I will be happy to translate for you.
