It says Extra on the license of those are licensed Extra's. Not no-code or passed 20wmp Extra.  Just Extra.  Get over it already

It is a product of lobbying for sales. It is a give away. As far as over it, I am until some says it is the same accomplishment as old school extra when it is not and never will be.

So you'll think less of me as a no-code Extra, than if I was a coded Extra?  Pretty shallow reasoning there.  Just because someone passes a 20wpm CW test doesn't make them any greater an amateur radio operator than no coders. 

It's a shame there will always be a contingent of people in the amateur radio community that will look down their crusty old noses at those who aren't "an old school extra".  SMH
