      It is for sure not a separate language. But is does require interpretation.

      Interpreter strips don't have an official signoff, because we don't require unit leaders to be fluent in every possible language. Essentially, you fulfill the requirements with someone skilled in the language, Scouts Honor, then you go to the Scout store and get the patch.

      It is somewhat self-enforcing, because if you cheat and wear a strip for a language you don't speak, you had better be prepared for someone to talk to you in that language.

      "Morse" seems like a bit of a stretch as a "language", but whatever.

      I would much, much rather have an official uniform patch for amateur radio operators, like this attractive one from Scouts Austrailia:

      Who administers the test for an interpreter strip? Is it OK to just place an order based on my own assessment of my ability?
