Former mil. spark here, can confirm Morse is reliable. I can still remember one NATO exercise where the US brought in the mother of all radio jammers. When they lit up the jammer, nearly all radio traffic ground to a halt, and rumours were they were close to setting the air on fire. Sparks could keep up the traffic, using a tiny RF bandwith and and a really right receiving filter we remained undefeated.
