    Let us never adopt the snobbish, elitist attitude of the FOC.

    FOC (FIRST CLASS OPERATORS)

    As I recall, only one nomination was necessary

    and

    code copying speed was considered subjective.

    CFO prided itself on being antiestablishment, disorganized with a bit of sarcasm thrown in.

    Any attempt to set high standards should be thwarted.

    Those who boast about their ability should be plucked and fried...or grilled.

    Certainly, any decent office secretary can type at 100 WPM.

    It takes far more skill to generate CW using a paddle or bug than a keyboard.

    Copying 60+ WPM takes a certain amount of talent in addition to effort.

    Always remember that when bragging about your speed.

    Keep CFO open to anyone demonstrating the ability to copy fast CW in their head.

    The FOC is much like the Masons. Their secret hand shake is 161 (instead of 73).

    Yes, 73 + 88 = 161.

    Almost sounds bisexual doesn't it?

    Of course they will only use this on each other.

    Membership is exclusive.

    One cannot ASK for it. If one ASK, he is disqualified.

    What a snobbish organization!

    This is totally in opposition to the proper spirit of ham radio.

    Who cares if a LID ends up with a CFO number?

    Is it the end of the world? I think not.

    It's good that CFO is being organized again but don't go too far...please.

    Now back to my bug.
    Steve N4LQ CFO #828 In poor standing.

    Good to see cw is alive and well. I remember people saying it would die when the cw requirement was removed. I honestly know many new hams learning it for FUN.
