    Finally I think I have it right. Because "you're worth it", society owes it to you and no arguement should stand in your way. I suppose the ultimate arguement would be that a comatose person is therefore owed everything by everyone!

    Some folks can not learn the code for medical reason, I can understand that. Like some do not have the coordination to play golf. Like i broke both of my feet in Nam. All i have is uncordinated pain in my left foot.

    Up to this point point, I have kept my mouth shut regarding the whining, moaning and just plain nonsense regarding morse code.
    Today, I took the test, again, and failed. Knowing the difference between a "dit" and a "dah" is one thing, combining them to sound at 17 wpm is another. And yes, I know the spacing is set to 5 wpm.
    Hearing extra class operators on repeaters complaining about tech class operators, the power button comes in handy, I just turn the radio off.
    I enjoy working SSB, 6 and 2 meters. 99% of the time, I hear voice. During contests, 99.9% of the time, I hear voice. Listening on HF, where are the code operators?
    It's gotten to a point, where my passing grade for Element 3 was a waste of time. Time to sell the radios and not look back. If the FCC wants to drop the code, so be it.

    Code quick 2000 is a way to learn code too. I am trying too.

    I admire you for trying.

    My understanding is the FCC is gona drop the code requirement for general before the yr is out. And the code to some is awful to learn. Some people can play a piano and other can not.

    Don't count on it!

    It's awful to everyone at first!

    Agreed...and you can bet nobody ever learned to play a piano without first trying.

    If the code is so fantastic why force people to learn it? Why fear its removal? I know why...I understand the fear--The fear of the code on the wave dying...

    should be optional....:D

    And you are the only one who makes relevant remarks !
    You are comparing the UN with a democratic organization. Ok, if you think so but don't try to convince me.

    The fear of not finding folks to code with... The fear of talking and getting to know someone up close and personal...
