very true. the only time you would NEED code would be in EXTREMELY bad
situations -- ie, the world as we know it is gone gone gone. Otherwise
it's truly an anachronism. I suppose it's good to have folks who know it
just in case of some major MAJOR catastrophe; and there are some people
who
enjoy learning Latin too, a fairly useless language. So good-on-em if
that's their thing.

I must say that after Katrina hit our area and the sun flare activity
had anialated HF completly it was fourtunate for us too have some
people who could do CW. This is the emergency situation I believe
Falky was talking of. It helped save alot of people.So did VHF/UHF
SIMPLEX and believe it or not Echolink. So there is alot too our
hobbie for everyone and lets show the intelligence we credit ourselves
with and not knock any facet of this great hobbie. Cw is gone or soon
will be from testing here in the states and this makes alot of sence.
but lets not knock CW as a usefull tool that all shoukld make a small
effort too try too learn a little of. i know I will be.

I have read this suggestion over the year and always aks just what good
that Morse Coded CW is going to do if things ever went that far to hell
(if morse were needed as opposed to just being useful for hobby
proposes that is)

I never get an answer to just what good Morse code would be in this
doomday world.

the best answer I have seen to that is the unlikely "Independance day"
senario


Try hurricane aftermath combined with serious solar/geomagnetic
disturbances. This scenario has actually happened this very year
according
to what I've read.


you are just plain wrong if you are refering to Katrina at no time was
Morse the only working mode
