Morse Code: Numbers, Punctuation, & Special Characters

Whether you're giving coordinates or doing math, learning how to use Morse code numbers, punctuation and other special characters are necessary for effective communication.

After all, what is all this tedious work memorizing all these dots and dashes worth if we can't even count to ten in Morse code?

This guide will illustrate all Morse code numbers, punctuation, and other important special characters, as well as how to string together larger numbers!

Let's get to it!

Morse Code Numbers

Numbers in Morse code are in many ways the easiest set of characters to learn as they all contain the same number of signals and build upon each other in a sequential way. Check out the following diagram below and you'll see just what I mean.

Complete chart of all Morse code numbers

Number 0 in Morse Code is: 

5 dashes ( _ _ _ _ _ )

Number 1 in Morse Code is: 

1 dot—4 dashes ( . _ _ _ _ )

Number 2 in Morse Code is: 

2 dots—3 dashes ( . . _ _ _ )

Number 3 in Morse Code is: 

3 dots—2 dashes ( . . . _ _ )

Number 4 in Morse Code is: 

4 dots—1 dash ( . . . . _ )

Number 5 in Morse Code is:

5 dots ( . . . . . )

Number 6 in Morse Code is:

1 dash—4 dots ( _ . . . . )

Number 7 in Morse Code is:

2 dashes—3 dots ( _ _ . . . )

Number 8 in Morse Code is: 

3 dashes—2 dots ( _ _ _ . . )

Number 9 in Morse Code is: 

4 dashes—1 dots ( _ _ _ _ . )

How to Make Larger Numbers In Morse Code

We create larger numbers in Morse code the same way that we create words, by simply adding them together with pauses in between each number. Check out the example of the number 169 below!

1 dot—4 dashes——1 dash—4 dots——4 dashes—1 dots

( . _ _ _ _     _ . . . .     _ _ _ _ . )

Morse Code Punctuation

Punctuation in Morse code is a little harder to learn than the numbers as they are a little more random. Check out the diagram below!
