{194} semaphore

back to using google for inspiration! i've been in desperate need of help to get me over the 200-mark hurdle. i can't believe i'm this far!!

Semaphore is similar to Morse code in that each letter of a message is translated into another form to allow it to be more easily communicated. While Morse code is used to send messages electronically over a telegraph line, semaphore is used to visually communicate information over long distances.
To use semaphore, an operator holds a flag or lighted wand in each hand. The operator extends their arms to the correct position and pauses for each letter of the message.
