I learned morse in the Navy back in the 90's. I love hearing it again and getting back in the code mood.
I want to know what others are doing with it? Do people send code online or will I need to get an antenna?

HAM Radio operators use it to communicate on the HF bands. It is great for long distance connections and requires very simple means. It's no longer used commercially or otherwise, just for fun.

Get a HAM license and join in on the fun! Scan the bands at just above 10MHz and you'll hear lots of morse (CW) activity.

Amateur radio morse:

Look for the parts of the spectrum designated as "CW". At night time, most activity is below 10 MHz.

Morse is still sporadically in use in other applications (shortwave spy-to-secret service communications sending garbled blah blah, shortwave time signals, cell phone "SMS" tone, Morse tapers, Morse potential, etc.).
