    Yes, code testing is back! Well, actually, it's never been gone, but now you get your name in QST if you pass the code test.

    Starting with the August issue, QST will be naming names of those who passed the test. The August issue lists the 20 or so hams (and one non-ham) who got their code proficiency certificate from a W1AW (or West Coast) qualifying run in 2019. It sounds like future listings will be monthly. The announcement is at this link:

    Your next chance to take the code test is Thursday, July 25 (July 26 UTC). The full schedule is at this link:

    Somewhere around here, I have a 15 WPM certificate from about 1975, and I guess I'll have to see about getting at least a 20 WPM sticker for it.

    I wonder how many grumpy no-coders will voice their negative opinions! I will post thee total after the thread dies down.
    I'll send the most innovative "grump" a free can of ALPO to dine on...

    BTW, what do they have to be grumpy about anyways?

    If I win, can I have Purina Kibble instead. (I'm on the Kibble diet) Lost 50 pounds the last time I was on it.
