Morse Code variation

Here in Italy we sometimes use a different way for writing Morse code
messages on paper, and I thought I'd share it with the Net.
This method looks similar to EKG results.
You write a short peak for a dot, and a longer peak for a dash, a
short "flatline" to separate letters, and a long "flatline" to
So, as an example, here is how I'd write ABC under that notation:
/\ /\ /\ /\
/\/ \__/ \/\/\/\__/ \/\/ \/\
This way it's easier to distinguish handwritten dots and dashes, and
it's also slightly faster to write since you don't have to take the
pen away from the paper. It allows you to easily record a message for
later decoding, also.
