It still has a place in the BSA handbook. Our District and Council still
use it in their Klondikes. But use it? Teach it?? I think not!
Would love to see it come back, but realistically, If a scout knew how to
do semaphore or Morse in an emergency situation, just how many rescuers
would know what he was saying?
IMHO of course.
