Ham Radio - Morse Code vs. Text Messaging

Jay Leno pits Morse Code(CW) against cellphone text messaging.

If they were using a standard cell, it's no wonder. They have to press the same key as many times as the Morse code sender, but then they have to move to a different button.

The Morse guy has instant feedback from the sound of the dashes and dots.
