    I read something about this in my local clubs news letter but can find no other references to it. Just wondering if anyone else has heard anything about it? If so your opinions.

    It would be nice if they did, at least for the Extra Class. But they won't. Must be an April 'Special Newsletter' ...

    Poisson d’Avril. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

    You are confused. The new Morse code requirement will apply only to those who operate FT8 and include sending/receiving text describing how to build a dipole.

    I think they should instate IT and computer tech and programming as a requirement.

    Affirmative. It's been confirmed by a high-level source.

    There will be five multiple-choice questions, based upon contents of a 5-minute, 5WPM audio tape run.
    I acquired one question leaked from [redacted] at FCC Headquarters named Ajit Pai as he snuck out the back door to evade arrest:


    "What does SOS sent as single Morse Code character mean?"

    1. Creamed chipped beef on toast
    2. S**t -on-a-shingle
    3. Come quick-danger

    Welcome aboard! You're one of us, now. Expect a learning plateau at 7-1/2 WPM. Stay with it.
