Default Is the code requirement really keeping good people out of ham radio?


Or just lazy people out?

I learned code in 1956 and haven't had to use it yet.

I learned in 30 years later. Used it 1.5 times. Not worth the effort.

rrap.

You know who I'm referring to.

The Morse test neither helps nor hinders... It is simply another
barrier to be overcome by the motivated... If it weren't for such
barriers we would all have certificates as neurosurgeons...
If the feds want to drop CW, fine by me... If you want to discuss it
look for me on the bottom end of 160 and 80...

You probably don't remember your callsign either, or do you prefer using a CB
handle?

I learned sufficient code to gain my upgrade to General in 2005 and passed
the written test the same evening. I have no interest in using code further.
I may change my mind on that later, but given my advanced years, the point
may be moot. My primary interest as a Ham is in fiddling with antennas, only
one of the 11 antennas scattered about my 7 acres was purchased. There are 5
at my detached shop/shack and 6 more back at the house to use when I desire
air conditioning while pursuing my hobby. Three of these are indoor dipoles
for use when bad weather threatens, as it often does here in southern
Oklahoma. I hope all you other gentlemen continue to enjoy the access to the
Amateur Bands allowed by what ever license class you possess.

I'll agree with you 100%. I have a Tech license and enjoy the hobby very
much. I plan on upgrading to General once the code issue is settled. I have
always heard that "If you don't use it, you lose it". I have no interest in
the code so why should I not be allowed to enjoy Ham radio. BTW, my CB
license years back was KLW4194..

I wish it would keep all you "non antenna related" goofballs
out of the antenna newsgroup. Why don't you all get some
kind of life on a group that pertains to stuff like that. IE: misc..

That's why you'll never be an asset to the ham radio service. You're too
lazy to be an asset.
