As a general class ham, I'm in favor of dropping the CW proficienty
requirement for HF access. If you like the mode then by all means use
it, but if not don't.

It would be far more useful to require more technical knowledge than
being able to copy five words / minute. sb106

requirement dropped.

It is a pointless requirement that has only hurt the hobby .

HF ham radio should be easier to get into. I am also in favor of a
simpler written portion of the testing.
A test that only covers basic rules and regs also safety issues would
be appropriate.

If an individual wishes to learn more about the technical aspects of
this hobby they will do so on their own.

I hate to puncture anyones balloon, but dropping the code is not going
to help bring new or young people into the hobby. Get real!!! In the
age of computers and cell phones doing more all the time, do you really
think that the younger people are going to spend the time to study to
become a ham. I don't think so!!! You people need to come out of your
dream world and join the real world. The only thing that is going to
happen, is that the people will now upgrade and we still lose, because
there won't be any new hams to take their place. You need to stop and
look at the big picture and ask your self if the younger people are
going to become hams. I have to say it doesn't look too promising. Just
my feelings.

I say drop the code but retain the band plan with the allocated
sections for cw , so not to take anything away from the people who
still want to only use cw. My biggest pet peeve is , be it 5wpm or
20wpm , it is still only ONE MODE of operation.
We aren't tested on packet,echolink, or any other mode to get even a
tech license. Like it or not the code is soon to be a dead horse , and
the hf bands will never be the same all because no-one knew the code. (

Well, as a general class ham and FISTS member, I certainly am
disappointed with the "hams" who not only want to drop the code
requirement altogether, but feel the perverted need to bash those who
still respect the art and skill of CW.

I am for it being kept but only for the top license. Either that or
permit technicians some HF frequencies to experience that form of
operation besides 28.300-28.500.

I say drop the code and make RF and electrical safety hands-on classes
with proper lightning protection and grounding techniques. This is more
valuable than any mode of operation test. I say drop the code but
replace the code with more important issues I have listed above.

They should consider dropping the code for 10 or 12 meters or both for
Technician class, and include 10 & 12 meters in the test that would
give them a taste of HF and maybe more of a incentive to upgrade in
class. But not drop the code all together.

Thanks..ck

I am in favor of dropping code. It is not used and the CW I do hear is
very, very seldom.
With cell phones, text message, computers, email and chat, the radio
hobby is dying.
On the other hand, if they do want to allocate another band to CW users
only, that's fine too but I feel CW is hurting ham radio usage.
I do think the tests should be reasonable and would require some
thought.

I don't think that dropping code will increase the number of operators.
If you want it you can have it now. There's enough under the tech
licensing to keep you busy for a while if you look around!

I DO believe that dropping code would vastly increase the number of
general operators. Good or bad, this is to be debated. I for one (as
stated many times before) am for dropping code FOR GENERAL ONLY. If
they want to make the test more technical then go ahead. There are too
many techs out there who pounded thru code but yet still have no
understanding of basic electronics, safety, and.... CODE for that
matter. Loose the code and teach them safety and electronics before
they kill themselves!

I understand both sides of code debate, but as far as doing away with
it just so a person can upgrade to GENERAL CLASS is a bunch of bull.
How about if they do it this way, do away with code for all classes
except General Class??? that way to get access to the majority of the
HF band you will have to work a little and pass code to get the
priviledges. Most of the people that will upgrade to General will stop
there and go no farther, because if they keep code for Extra, that is
where they will stop. My feelings are, if they are going to drop code,
it should be dropped period. My feelings are, get off your lazy butts
and learn the code and then you will not have to worry one way or the
other.

Well, as a general class ham and FISTS member, I certainly am
disappointed with the "hams" who not only want to drop the code
requirement altogether, but feel the perverted need to bash those who
still respect the art and skill of CW.

OK, everyone can we stick with the topic of Dropping the Code.

It is a simple question that deserves a simple answer and is not
intended to become a personal debate between a select few who do not
agree with what others post.

If you want to start a debate then PLEASE start another topic or e-mail
the person direct.

PLEASE, when you submit a post Address your comments to the Question
and not the Person posting their personal comments/feelings on the
Question.

Thanks,

I am for it being kept but only for the top license. Either that or
permit technicians some HF frequencies to experience that form of
operation besides 28.300-28.500.

I say drop the code and make RF and electrical safety hands-on classes
with proper lightning protection and grounding techniques. This is more
valuable than any mode of operation test. I say drop the code but
replace the code with more important issues I have listed above.

They should consider dropping the code for 10 or 12 meters or both for
Technician class, and include 10 & 12 meters in the test that would
give them a taste of HF and maybe more of a incentive to upgrade in
class. But not drop the code all together.

Thanks..ck

I am in favor of dropping code. It is not used and the CW I do hear is
very, very seldom.
With cell phones, text message, computers, email and chat, the radio
hobby is dying.
On the other hand, if they do want to allocate another band to CW users
only, that's fine too but I feel CW is hurting ham radio usage.
I do think the tests should be reasonable and would require some
thought.

I don't think that dropping code will increase the number of operators.
If you want it you can have it now. There's enough under the tech
licensing to keep you busy for a while if you look around!

I DO believe that dropping code would vastly increase the number of
general operators. Good or bad, this is to be debated. I for one (as
stated many times before) am for dropping code FOR GENERAL ONLY. If
they want to make the test more technical then go ahead. There are too
many techs out there who pounded thru code but yet still have no
understanding of basic electronics, safety, and.... CODE for that
matter. Loose the code and teach them safety and electronics before
they kill themselves!

I understand both sides of code debate, but as far as doing away with
it just so a person can upgrade to GENERAL CLASS is a bunch of bull.
How about if they do it this way, do away with code for all classes
except General Class??? that way to get access to the majority of the
HF band you will have to work a little and pass code to get the
priviledges. Most of the people that will upgrade to General will stop
there and go no farther, because if they keep code for Extra, that is
where they will stop. My feelings are, if they are going to drop code,
it should be dropped period. My feelings are, get off your lazy butts
and learn the code and then you will not have to worry one way or the
other.
