How did Oppenhaimmer and Morrell come up with their knocking code?

I really enjoyed the book but when discussing it with my friend, we realized that we have no idea how could they come up with their knocking code. It is not Morse code because if it was Standing would understand it right away, but he mentions that he had to crack the code first.
And considering they cannot talk to each other, it seems impossible to come up with a language system which keeps changing.
Any suggestions?

The book says they change the main letter for the code during those conversations, as to how they managed to create it...

Maybe they did start with Morse, or something similar but less known, and then created their own system.

Anna It did not cross my mind that they could actually start with Morse and then change it. That is very good theory. Thanks for the idea!
