Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

Chinese Telegraph Code Book

I know this is a long shot but does anyone have a copy of the Chinese Telegraph handbook that I can borrow or look at? Although it fell out of use with introduction of computers, a website I found said it's still use by Ham radio enthusiasts in Taiwan.

Hi,
I don't have the book (though I knew a man once who had memorized it -- yes really -- and sat all day working as a Chinese typesetter using only those codes for input!) but the codes can be found online:
Telegraphic Code Lookup

Hope that will help.

Thanks IL but it's actually a copy of the book I'm after. I think I may have found one in HK.
