US Rep Tweets News in Morse Code

When US Representative Greg Walden, W7EQI (R-OR), learned December 16 that he will be chairing the House Subcommittee on Communications, Technology and the Internet when the 112th Congress convenes in January, he let the world know about it by tweeting the news in Morse code.

“Just the ham radio operator in me having fun,” he posted to his official Web page.

According to its Web site, the subcommittee has jurisdiction over “interstate and foreign telecommunications including, but not limited to all telecommunication and information transmission by broadcast, radio, wire, microwave, satellite or other mode."

Representative Walden is a former owner of Columbia Gorge Broadcasters.
