COMMENTS

Written in base 3, the terms read (12, 2111, 2121, 211, 1, 1121, 221, 1111, 11, 1222, 212, 1211, 22, 21, 222, 1221, 2212, 121, 111, 2, 112, 1112, 122, 2112, 2122, 2211). This contains all words over {1,2} with 1 to 4 letters except for 1122, 1212, 2221 and 2222, which correspond to the codes for Ü, Ä, Ö and CH. - M. F. Hasler, Jun 22 2020

EXAMPLE

The sixth letter, F, is ".._." in Morse. This becomes 1121 in ternary and 43 in decimal, so a(6) = 43.
