The Sebir that created Morse Code

Background

Around 1838, an American inventor Samuel Morse was travelling by stagecoach across the USA. He noticed that fresh horses were tethered to the stagecoach at relay stations to sustain progress over the remaining journey

Goal

Improve the electrical transmission of information

Problem

The electrical transmission of Information loses strength when it travels over distance

Sebir

The electrical transmission of information was improved through installing relay stations to boost signal energy as required

The total distance involved was traversed adequately because the information transmission was being re-energised at appropriate junctures

Association Comment

Samuel Morse 'associated' the ability of fresh horses to boost physical energy and adapted it to create and link together relay stations that would boost electrical energy

Historic Impact

Because of the efforts of Samuel Morse, the Morse code (which bears his name) was invented
