Should we learn the ampersand, or &, as a choice to learn in the characters settings?

Well the International morse ampersand is not quite the highest priority,
- though someone is bound to use it at you at some point, along with some fairly obscure Q-codes
The & currently in use is the Continental Morse version which sounds like :- "es"
( see the section "Common Punctuation" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Morse_code )
So - learn it all if you can or if you just want to . . .

I hear the "&" a lot on air but I don't know what to make of it. Apparently it's a prosign for :
KA "&" attention ("-.-.-")
But attention to what?

& is .-...
As a prosign this is AS which means wait
It is non ITU-R https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ITU-R but is a "convention", along with several others like $ or !
KA ( or CT ) means start up of activity or new message
