The new brit ticket is one of those "just show up" tickets. Just show up and you get one.Thats been a trend in ham radio for years so what else is new ? Is that much different than a no code tech getting his extra over the weekend here in the usa , as I read abt in qst I think some time back?The majority of hams wanted to make the exams easy and to do away with code testing. Well, we got it now and all of a sudden the new guys realize they dont have the braggin rights the old timers do So sad, to bad. It will never go back to fcc testing and 20wpm so why waste ones time getting upset over lowered standards ? Thats what the majority wanted and thats they got.
