N1EQ: We never had a Morse code requirement. It was an Internation code requirement.

Click on Interco in the body of text.

"Click on Interco in the body of text"

I'm not sure what you mean. Robert Wadlow, the world's tallest man, worked for International Shoe Co (Interco). That link to another Interco is an error. I don't believe he was a ham. Or was he?

He is still a legend around Alton Illinois

Actually it's INTERCO in the body of the text

and it redirects me to:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INTERCO

No, it didn't really say he was a ham.

I once shared an apartment with a State Trooper who

copied code in the military with a "mil". That was a

special typewriter, right? After doing this for eight

hours a day, he said he was NOT interested in code!

The military sometimes has a way of doing this. hi hi

And I think he said it was standard at 60 wpm, but

not sure. He said he could carry a voice conversation

with someone in the room while copying even though

it was encrypted. He's gone now so no way to verify

this info.
