I lurk on the m100 mailing list (m100-subscribe [at] list.30below.com),
and some folks there have written morse code software for the TRS-80
Model 100, an early laptop using an 80C85 CPU. The 80C85 and 1802 have
little in common other than being 8-bit CMOS microprocessors, but you
might get some ideas. Several hams are on that list, so you might come
up with other ham radio applications.
