ARRL talking about eliminating novice subbands (see http://www.arrl.org/news/stories/2001/12/21/2/?nc=1
They mention: "A guiding principle was that no class of licensees would lose any privileges as a result of refarming."
What they want to do is stretch voice into the novice band.
But it seems like that's losing privs to me! Although you can operate CW in a voice band, the practicality would say no.
And even if so, it looks like if you're a general, you would not be able to do CW where you previously could in the novice area.
What does everyone else read in this? It sure doesn't seem like a win for cw use does it?
