# Morse code for hash (#)

Is there a morse code for a hash character? If so, what is that morse code? My thoughts where that there is morse code for an @ but why not for a #?

• There is no official Morse Code for it. itu.int/dms_pubrec/itu-r/rec/m/… Possibly it is not a frequently used punctuation in radio communication. – sessyargc.jp May 26 '15 at 21:52
• The Morse code for @ was only officially added in 2004 (or, confirmed in 2004) and this was motivated primarily by the need to send e-mail addresses. I presume if someday sending Tweets via Morse code becomes popular, a # code will be added. – K7PEH May 27 '15 at 14:49
• @K7PEH Thanks that'll answer my question. – Thealon May 28 '15 at 8:40

"#" isn't the only symbol in common computer use which is not defined in Morse code. For example, Morse code can't distinguish upper and lower case letters. Nor does it have codes for any of {*^&_. The reason is likely that Morse code is intended to be memorized and decoded by a human, and each additional code makes that harder. How much harder would it be if instead of the 26 basic letters, a little punctuation and a few prosigns, you had to learn 128 codes for the entire basic ASCII character set? Or, 113,021 codes to cover all of Unicode 7?
