CW is an abbreviation for Continuous Wave,
describing how Morse code is most often transmitted.
A transmitter is simply keyed on and off and
a tone is sent to the receivers and heard as a beep.

Morse code is popular among amateur radio operator, and
is a method of transmitting information as a series of tones that
can be directly understood by a listener without special equipment.
The International Morse Code encodes the alphabet and
numerals as sequences of short and long beeps called
“dots” and “dashes”,or “dits” and “dahs”.

Each letter or numeral is represented by a unique sequence of dots and dashes. The code was designed so that the length of each character varies approximately inversely to its frequency of occurrence in English. The most common letter in English, the letter “E”, has the shortest code, a single dot.
