The ink is not dry on the NPRM and already the next phase of "kill CW" begins. Lets take spectrum from the best behaved amateurs in the hobby and give it to the skip talkers. Eh roger, good buddy! More idiots will flock to phone. How do I know? Because you already hear them on repeaters, see them at hamfests, and at club meetings. They will be able to pass the written test because it is not a test, it is a memory drill. Ask Alaska Steve about the class he taught of Generals and NCTs upgrading. After studying and being able to pass the practice tests, none of them could quote OHM's Law. When they complained that was too technical, he asked them what the wavelength of 20M was. Nobody knew. Two guys wanted the "conversion factor". More dim-wits on phone will mean more pressure for more spectrum. A real mob mentality will prevail. The group of well behaved, knowledgable CW ops will be shouted down by the mob. Look at the comments above if you don't think it hasn't started already. Even the many well behaved phone ops today will be caught up in the stampede. Predictions that Amateur Radio will not get nastier and more contentious are Pollyannaish.
