Morse Message (1962)
In 1962, a radio message in Morse code was transmitted from Evpatoria Planetary Radar (EPR) and directed to planet Venus.

All three words were sent using the Morse code. In Russian, this letter is called Radio Message "MIR, LENIN, SSSR". This message is the first radio broadcast for extraterrestrial civilizations in the history of mankind, it was also used as a test for the radar station (but was not used for measuring the distance to Venus because for distance measurements the EPR uses coherent wavefor
