    I told him about my concerns about fcc limitations on symbol rates and encryption in amatuer radio. I also explained that there are no specialized protocols in interfacing with cell systems. If restrictions were removed an army of seasoned telecoms experimentors would be available for rapid response to infrastructure failures within a few years.

    If you truly care about public service: repeat this conversation with anyone willing to listen.

    Called Kelly back and said 5% of hams want this and over 90% think the 5% are smoking dope. Army of experimentors was the lie used to remove the telegraphy test. Name ONE new innovation by a no coder. Let me know if it was Dana or Torbett. I will call on the phone.

    By definition an innovation must be new!

    I too passed the code test and I feel confident in saying memorizing a 19th century code of short and long sounds is an entirely separate skill from inventing new kinds of radios.

    What does passing code have to do with a hobby that has almost unlimited other activities. You like code, good for you, someone else likes SSB, another PSK, another JT8, another DMR, and so on. Who cares? Face it, it's a hobby! For every ham that passed the code test and was "innovative" how many passed the code test and never invented or innovated anything? The days of hams being innovative and inventing are gone, the commercial world is light years ahead with 21st century stuff, but "we're superior we know code!"

    I think having to learn Norse Code would get rid of all the lids and clueless newbies.
