Did you know…


… that today is the birthday of SOS? In 1904, the Marconi Company established “CQD” as the first international radio distress signal. “CQ” stood for “seek you” and “D” stood for “danger.” Two years later, the distress signal of three-dots, three-dashes, three-dots was adopted. This distress signal soon became known as “SOS” because it has the same dash-dot sequence as the letters S O S with the gaps between the letters removed.
