Scouts-L Mail Archive for October of 1998: semaphore and Morse Code fun
semaphore and Morse Code fun
Thu, 22 Oct 1998 21:42:36 -0600
WE made up a game - Signal Flag Battleship - to use with semaphore flags
and international signal flags. There are sites on the Web for both. I
sewed 5 sets of semaphore flags and colored international signal flags on
4 by 6 index cards (print them in color off the Web is you can and don't
like to color!)
The two teams each get a battleship board and set up their ships. The
coordinates are sent with either semaphore flags or international signal
flags to the other team who must decode them.
For morse code, my husband has a code key hooked up to a small speaker and
it beeps when you send it. It's noisy, but the guys like it.
