If a "Radio Operator" can't copy Morse code he has not the skill to use radio in one of its most basic forms. Modern digital modes using computers is the future. Considering history a person unskilled in Morse code has no more right to be considered a "radio operator" than a person has a right to be called a pilot who can only fly his plane by computer on auto pilot. Do away with the code test - fine. But given the arguments for doing so it is also time to change the name of the amateur radio service. Radio is an antiquated word coined in the 1920's. The FCC should change the name of the service to the Amateur Modern Communications Service and we should be referred to as amateur digital attendants or amateur computer operators. You can think of a better term but amateur "radio" is a term that is now obsolete.
