Instructions

Split patrols down in to small groups no larger than 4 people. Each group is given the morse code activity booklet, and some crib cards. In their groups learning by practical message sending between each other.

As time goes on try to get the groups to turn over their crib sheet and write some messages, pass the messages around and see how much they can get correct.

Now in their groups, using pen and paper write morse code messages to other groups and have the groups decode the messages, when each group is confident in sending and receiving paper messages. Give each group a message to send, give them a few minutes to write them down and in a field, using the torch or morse code oscillator send practical messages to another group, and have the other group decode the message.
