Abstract
A radix 2 based system is composed of two separate character types that have no meaning except not representing the other character type as defmed by Shannon in 1948. The radix 5 based system employs five separate characters that have no semantic meaning except not representing the other characters. Traditional literature has a random string of binary sequential characters as being "less patterned" than non-random sequential strings. A non-random string of characters will be able to compress, were as a random string of characters will not be able to compress. This study has found that a radix 5 based character length allows for equal compression of random and non- random sequential strings. This has important aspects to information transmission and storage.
