Yes, chill. Spark was a Damped Wave, I'm not an ignorant moron. But CW to most people means as Jim said keying the signal on and off. It's just like people referring to Skill saws when talking about any circular saw and Xerox machines meaning copiers no matter who makes them. Geeze today, we still refer to keying the transmitter no matter what mode is in use.

What he meant, and how I read it, was that a "telegraph key"
was the thing that was used to turn and off the outgoing
signal.  Of course that signal was not a "continuous" signal
as in a carrier as we know it today.  Semantics.  Grammar.

spark as if it is CW.
