    Hello All,

    Like the other folks here, I am using QRZ to announce that early last week I filed a Petition for Rulemaking with the FCC supporting the retention of Telegraphy testing. The petition seeks to make minor modifications to Part 97 to allow:

    1. Use of existing Tech Plus class for No Code access to HF frequencies limited to 100W ERP. Requires passing elements 2 and 3.

    2. Petition suggests top 50Khz of most bands but is only a suggestion.

    3. Keep Telegraphy Element 1 for General and Extra as today as well as current written test requirements.

    4. Keep existing Technician class (Element 2)

    The petition does not rule out combination with other like petitions provided certains conditions are met.

    I am glad to see other petitions filed supporting CW. When I filed this I was one of, if not the first, to file an alternative to the anti-CW petitions. You can read the short petition by clicking on the link below.

    I congratulate the pro-code petitioners for other good alternatives. Although somewhat different, the petitions all agree that CW is far from dead.
