    Why Does it Really Matter?

    Those of you that have Already taken the Morse code Test will still retain it.

    Those who have taken there Licence Exam will Still retain it.

    Those who do not take a Morse code test Will not.

    Those who will use HF Will.

    The FCC Decides for you and an Amateur taking Any test does so because it is in place at the TIME!!

    And as far as I can tell there will be No automatic Upgrades so Techs will still have to take the Gen Exam!!

    BUT, Those who Argue for will Continue to Do SO.

    And those who Argue against will No longer have to.

    The Division between Amateurs in The USA will Remain [​IMG]

    And if it was me and this spilled over onto the Air then I would just Work the DX [​IMG]

    I have Never come across a DX station that did Not want to Communicate with me because I did Not take a Morse Code test!

    I guess in The USA it is a much Bigger Country than ours and you might Work more of your own Countryman and could be Influenced by what they Think of You [​IMG]


    Not a Problem here and Not a problem for any Amateurs if they get access to HF if the Law changes in the USA.
    Just work DX as the rest of the World could Not care less.

    Hey Charlie:
    There have been MANY no codie techs that wanted to upgrade over the years but they got over it due to the Morse requirement.
    I think it's a lose lose situation.....except for those who personally hate the no code people.

    Why the 'No-Code' emphasis towards Technicians? There hasn't been a CW test for them for MANY years. I think it goes without saying. Kinda' like saying I'm a 'Coded Extra.'

    You have no idea what you're talking about and you have a goofy username. Do you have webbed feet as well?

    They never will build cars without carborators.

    Gas will never rise above 50 cents a gallon.

    No one will ever pay $20 per month just to have cable television.

    Western Union will never eliminate the telegram

    ..................
    I'm afraid when the FCC finally gets around to it, CW will be a mode people enjoy using vs having to learn just enough NOT to be able to use it effectively

    ITS BUSH's FAULT. (Just kidding, couldn't resist.) [​IMG]

    OK, DUDES OF MY DUDES, I have this on good authority (Condi told me) The FCC will complete the extermination of code by years end.

    So, you kill the hobby at any cost types, you can stop your party plans in there tracks. NCT's plan your NO Code parties and prepare to have fun.
