This reminds me of one of Arthur C Clarke's books. I think it's A Fall of Moondust. A moonliner is invisibly stranded under the dust of the moon and the captain manages to communicate with the surface by tapping on a metal shaft with a spanner. Clarke makes a good point: Pilots always grumbled about having to learn Morse - it was a complete waste of time in an age of electronics. In all your life you might only need it once. But that of course was just the point - you really would need it then.
