Personally I think CW operators should have special recognition through a separate "Master CW operator" license or something to that effect.


Since the FCC did away with code requirements, but retained the 25kHz Extra-only segments on the CW ends of the HF bands -- those segments should be opened up to all Hams of General class or above who passed an FCC administered 13wpm test.  Post-code-requirement Amateur Extras wishing access to those 25 kHz CW segments should have to prove 13wpm receive and send proficiency to a Ham who has already met that requirement.

It won't happen though as long as the FCC keeps basing their decisions on reducing the cost & difficulty of administration, rather than on what makes sense.



First off, there'd be the problem of proving who had passed the proposed tests and who hadn't.

And why 13 wpm? Why not 20 wpm?

Would you mind explaining  exactly what it is you hoped this thread would accomplish?

Please try to be brief.

Thank you.
