Good call Kay Kay! I overlooked that one! And, yes, the STRAIGHT KEY button is held between the thumb and middle finger with the index finger resting on the button.

Are you sure that this was the method (two finger/thumb key) first used when wireless Marconi systems were first developed?

This is true, but it was also pointed out that Titanic was in fact the first ship to use Morse Code. Therefore, the machine thing was right, but the code used in the movie wasn't.

The MORSE CODE system (which the Marconi system is based on) was invented in 1837 and was the SAME type/system of Morse code that brought about the demise of the Pony Express.
