The Pool

Actually, Alun, I'd say it was the other way around. The shouting is
all overand the test continues until the paperwork is completed.


Good one!


I thought you'd like it.

The unanimously agreed
language, now passed through all the commitee levels, makes it
optional.


Maybe that's a solution for the FCC. Have code tests at 5, 13 and 20
wpm. Just make them optional.


I think that would be fine, but I don't think the FCC would go for it.


WA2ISE's idea has merit. Might be a way to get widespread support.

It just has to be nodded through at the plenary session. This allows
those countries mentioned, plus Germany to retain CW testing without
it seeming that it no longer relates to ITU rules, whilst also
allowing every other country to dump CW teasting.


We oughta have a pool on how long it takes The Congress and FCC to get
through the various levels of rubberstamping. My wild guess is no more
than a year from today.


I would think about the same, but surely we should each guess a particular
date, and the winner should be whoever is closest.

K2ASP has MArch 15, 2004. I have April 15, 2004. Pick a date!

Dang, you beat me out, Jim! Seems FCC likes April Fools Day when it
comes to the ARS. Tha last slam was on April 1, 2000 IFIRC.


If you mean the recent restructuring - that was April 15, 2000.

I think you guys are being too optimistic. Odds are that Anderson won't
attempt obtaining an amateur license before sometime in 2011.

Never mind. I thought this was the "When will Len Anderson deign
amateur radio with his presence" pool.

OK. So we're picking dates for when the CW requirement (as it exists now)
will be dropped? Gosh. I think it's going to take a lot longer than a
year. Let's say five years; so, by June of 2008.

Heh heh, the real test here is whether many of us will be around RRAP to
roundabout on it when it happens, unless it does happen in the short term.

Well Kim, the ITU have actually abolished it effective July 5th, 2003. Do
you really think it will take the FCC five years to implement? I don't
think that even they are that slow!


Kim has a point, Alun, but I think 5 years is a bit much. Look how long it took
'em to do the Restructuring. And we're still waiting on some NPRMs.

But I'm sticking with the date I posted. Less than a year.
