Its all satellite working on military so no need, even Amateur radio in the UK has dropped it as requirement to get a licence, cw although still used is fast being replaced by new data modes

It's all dots and dashes to me. Wish I had learned it when I was younger though.

Still used in civi aviation for identifying radio navigation aids as is (shudder) HF radio. The latter is good fun when over the Atlantic when the guy in Bombay tries to give you a clearance to enter Indian airspace when you are just off Newfoundland.

I don't know if it is still a requirement for the licence but as I had to study Decca, Loran etc 20 years after the Wright brothers stopped using it, it probably is. BTW, if anyone can explain Decca or Loran to me.....

Second thoughts, lost cause.

Visual Morse (flashing light) is still taught in the RN, don't know how much it is used these days though as the specialist operators were got rid of and it was given as an adqual to a lesser branch.
Audio Morse is dead.

How could they show reruns of Morse without? And the new Endeavour wouldn't have such a catchy opening bit.
No, to answer the question, not used and not required any more. Until we have "On The Beach" scenario. You modern hi-tech communicators will need us old buggers then!
