The FCC has proposed the elimination of morse code testing for all classes of amateur radio licensing. This will most likely take effect in 30 to 60 days. For those that wanted to take an amateur radio test and morse code was a problem, your problem has been solved.

Check WWW.ARRL.ORG for details on this change to amateur radio licensing.

Yep!

The FCC has offically posted the R&O. It will take effect 30 days after publishing in the federal register. Which most likely will be mid Feb.

I think this could be a very good thing for Amateur Radio, maybe breath some life into this dying hobby, although, I am a bit disapointed, since I am/was almost ready to take the test... Which I still may do before it is no longer offered. I do agree with the FCC's decsion, CW is a mode, and should be treated no differently.

I'm thinking I may get on with this now as I was reluctant to get with the code part. I appreciate the FCC with moving on and approving this. I know that some of the older Hams are having a problem with this and I appreciate what they are saying but I still think it will help in the long run. Darn, now I need to get to studying.
