I'd like a copy of the list.

There's another one that I've heard of before: the old Morse 
telegrapher's "is the wire (or frequency) busy?" which, I was told, 
is the old Morse "C" didit dit. I was told thatthe reply for "yes, 
it's busy" was a single "dit." Exactly once, I had someone reply that 
way. I couldn't believe it and so again sent "didit dit" and got back 
a single "dit." So, I sat and listened. Sure enough, after a minute 
or two, I hear a station reply to someone I couldn't hear, on the 
same frequency on which I'd heard the "dit."

Is this one that anyone else has heard of?
