About MM

Morsum Magnificat is a bimonthly journal for all Morse enthusiasts, amateur or professional, beginner to veteran. Professional Morse at sea is about to end and Amateur Morse, visualised as the last bastion of Morse operating, is under longer-term threat. MM speaks out for Morse, and nothing else. However, it is not a commercial enterprise and it exists only through the support of individual enthusiasts, taking out subscriptions to the magazine to keep “their journal” alive. If you are concerned about recent developments it is in your own interest to support MM!

This web site exists to describe what is typically found in MM. There is much of interest about many aspects of the World of Morse here, and we hope you enjoy your visit. The following links will take you to all parts of the MM Home Pages:
