This tutorial shows how to make a type of telegraph using redstone clocks to record and store.

How to Make It[edit | edit source]

Step by Step[edit | edit source]

  1. First you need to make a building, at smallest 16 blocks by 5 blocks, and if you want, you can make it look like a realistic building in real life, such as a post office.
  2. Next, make a long hole in a wall. It must be 12 blocks long for a building 16 by 5 (If you made a building bigger, leave four block on the wall or make space somewhere else). You MUST have space for four blocks.
  3. Place repeaters along the hole on full delay.
  4. Hook up to a redstone clock (the bigger the better). A good way to save space is to go up down up down in rows. That will be the storer.
  5. The next thing to build is the sender. Place a lever on one of the spaces. It's good to have a sign on top saying Sender.
  6. After that, make a line of repeaters on full delay to the other telegraph office (A good way to do this is to go block repeater block so on). To make a turn, place a block, and then place a repeater facing the towards the place. Hook up to the redstone the clock on the other one telegraph office.
  7. To use the Sender, do it in Morse code. To make a dot, turn the telegraph on and off as fast you can. To make a dash, turn on, count to three, and then turn off again.
  8. The next thing to build is the deleter. Place blocks in the clock with sticky pistons touching them when on, so you can take them out of the clock stopping the pulse (Make it so that it won't break things; just take the block out).
  9. The final thing to build is the canceller. If you were to send a telegraph, make a mistake, and want to stop it from sending, just make a deleter. It's good to make lots up the track, as with the clock.

When you have completed all these steps, you are finished.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pro's

  • Can leave messages.
  • Fast.
  • Easy to use.

Con's

  • Needs lots of repeaters.
  • Morse code Needed.
  • Lags a fair bit (Good way to stop this is to keep it well lit in the redstone clock.)
  • Needs a large Clock to do 7 letters word.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Good to have a Morse code up some where.
  • Write it out on paper.
  • Place signs on top of levers
  • Nice touch is to hook note blocks up to the line, not the clock.
  • Make more clocks to take more messages.
