The term "CW" means two different things, according to context. If you say you picked up a CW signal, that does not imply that some old geyser was using it to send Morse with. If you say you were chatting to someone using CW, the old geyser was definitely there on his key! In my head, I was including Morse in amongst all the other mod systems. (not carefully, perhaps)
:wink:

Dah dit dah dah dit di dah dah dit
Some punctuation would help.
Does that begin with T, N, K or Y. Does that end with E, N, G or P.

Now you've got me wondering if there's a way to modulate a geyser. :devil:

Definition of geyser. A hot spring in which water intermittently boils ...
Definition of guiser. A person in disguise, a mummer especially in a Christmas or Halloween play.

Perhaps in your part of the world, but “geezer “ and other versions is an old (usually) guy with bizarre looks, hobbies or behavior. Or sometimes a smooth operator etc.. used mainly in London.
