Morse Code as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage

On December 12th, the Cabinet of Germany ratified the UNESCO

Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage, which brings us one step closer to the goal of the Deutscher Amateur Radio Club (DARC) and IARU to have Morse Code added to the list of Intangible cultural heritage.

The national UNESCO offices are checking the applications of their respective countries, and upon success they will be sent to Paris, where in November 2014, Morse Code could finally be accepted to the list.
