b. The Baudot code is a
five-unit, start-stop code. Each
character (letter, number, etc.) is a
combination of five intelligent
pulses (marks and spaces), plus a
start pulse and a stop pulse as
shown in figure 76. The start and
stop pulses start and stop the

pulse is always a space and the
stop pulse is always a mark.
