    If you intend to learn the code, why do we have to read your inincessant ramblings? From the hogwash that I have read from you, I doub't that there would be much human interaction there and God forgive me, I don't think that I would want to put the effort into it to find out.
    I learned the code while raising 3 children and holding down two full time jobs. Actually I am tired of listening to your lame excuses and reading your silly posts. Please do us all a favor and unscrew the whoopie cushion from your sholders and screw your head back on.
    You accused me of being unkind in my previous posts. I just thought that I would show you what unkind is!
    Either grow up or take your pills.
    I am taking the lead of others and will not post on this subject anymore; It's to hard to get an intelligent discussion from the other side.

    ps If you do pass the code exam I hope you find someone to "CODE" with. [​IMG]

    Hi all.

    There is no sending or receiving Morse code test in the new Somalia ham radio license qualifying course but Morse code is covered in another way in several parts of the new 18 topic Somalia ham radio license qualifying course.

    The Somalia amateur radio license qualifying course suggests that the fun way to learn Morse code is when you get on air with your ham radio licence.


    The Somalia ham radio license course is on the Internet and includes-

    1. The location of Morse code in the ham radio frequency band topics A and B.
    2. Morse code abbreviations are covered under the International amateur radio abbreviations and the international Q code topics.
    3. Emergency amateur radio communications part B includes the QN code.


    There is also an International Morse code topic that-

    1. Covers the history of Morse code over the last 167 years.
    2. Shows how Morse code is used in emergencies both on air and in general life.
    3. How to hold the straight Morse code key.
    4. How to avoid sending Morse code characters incorrectly.
    5. How to make a Morse code radio contact.
    6. New hams are encouraged to send slow nice sounding Morse code to let other hams know they are new and encourages use of the code QRS “Please send your Morse code slower”.

    The Somalia ham radio license qualifying course is on the website http://www.somaliahamradio.8k.com

    Hi Sam,

    Nice comments. Can you tell us HOW MANY Amateurs there are in Somalia?

    I suspect he's more like ae4ip and lives for the attention gotten from a good troll message.

    From the Somalia Amateur Radio site:

    and my favorite advice (maybe we should adopt this here in the US):

    Great info!

    No surprise here in the USA. It will continue to hold on here for some time to come as well. Amateur radio and Morse here are inseparable. Its like a cult religon. Those opposed to Morse as a requirement are often hunted down and burned at the stake.

    I see that the folks in Canada are considering dropping the Morse requirement to get a license. That kinda surprises me that they did it BEFORE France did.  Afterall, we all know how much the French like to surrender..... [​IMG]

    [Quote:The bands might get more crowded, but has anyone listened to Canadian portions of the bands, somedays pretty empty. As far as getting some of the 2m CB'ers on HF, I am quite sure we will have some with very poor operating practices, but that is why we are here to sort them out.]

    .............................................................................

    Wow! I didn't know we had our own band portions. This is going to be bad news for the other 300 odd countries who thought they had some rights to it.

    I have read the first 15 pages of this and quite frankly can't justify spending any more time on it.

    I used to be against no code but now I would just be happy if some of the ops I hear on VHF would be willing to learn a bit about ham radio proceedures before they embarass me on HF.

    As to the guys who booed the Star Spangled Banner at a Montreal hockey game. I believe they were ejected from the game. If they are ejected from the country I won't miss them. Maybe send them south where they will find some kindred spirits.

    I have been in ham radio for over 40 years. Met some great people and great operators. Many on CW. Many in North America, many elsewhere.

    I will continue to do what I enjoy on the ham bands. I had to work for the privledge but things change. CBers VHFers - bring em on!

    BTW The Russian alphabet has 31 characters. So they need some more on CW. "dit dah dit dah" is one of them.

    The Kanook no-code movement must be coming from the french Canada - the illogical short sighted anti- anything-that-america-has or supports part of Canada.
