Plank,

Yup. License easy to get, folks go the easy mode. I'm liking this 160 meters
Morse more each day.

Microphone, computer, bah, that's too easy.

We use CW not because it is easy. We use CW becasuse it is fun. I think Ronald
Reagan said that or someone else great.

THIS IS KOP


Couple points here. I don't know about any other instructors or V.E.'s but my admonition at every class or session is " You can memorize the answers but you will have nothing to teach "
Memorization or demonstrated learning, either works as a pass is a pass.

At this point? The code sending requirement went away in 1978. SO it's been a farce since 1978?

At this point? In 1983 we got the VE system and published Q&A pools. Same exact system as today. So it's been a farce since 1983?

Or at this point? In 1990 we got medical waivers for the 13 and 20 wpm code tests. Anybody could get any class of license with just 5 wpm code and a doctor's note. So a farce since 1990?

Or at this point? On February 23, 2007 The FCC rescinded the Morse code requirement for all amateur license classes. So a farce since 2007?

So which is it ? A farce for 39 years, 34 years, 27 years, or 10 years?

This one time the details are important.

Once a farce, always a farce.
