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.
