This Pig Pen and Morse Code Center Wheel contains the full set of Pig Pen characters around the outside
of the wheel. The Morse Code symbols for the 26 letters of the alphabet are on the inner part of the wheel.
Align the red section of the inner wheel with the Letter A on the outside wheel for standard usage.
There are different styles of creating the Pig Pen characters. The style we use is the one with 2
tic tac toes followed by 2 large X's as illustrated below. The second tic tac toe and the second large
X have dots to distinguish them from the first sets.
If you align the red section of the center wheel with the letter A on the outer wheel then you will have a
straight pig pen decoder. Using either the chart above or your pocket decoder,
see if you can figure out the following code:
See if you can figure out what this says:
The above examples were all simple ones were the red section of the center wheel aligned with the letter A
on the outside wheel. But for real fun and added security
you can align the red section with different letters to make a Caeser Cipher or
an even more secure Vigenere Cipher.
