The Night of Nights lives on!

One small thing: There is almost no mention of the fact that the ham bands are full of Morse Code.

You're right; and a pretty cool article still. I'm glad KPH does what they do. Not sure why, but kinda nice to know some things still exist even occasionally. Like lighthouses maybe.

Many of the military specialties have completely dropped CW from the curriculum as the reliability of their SATCOMS has matured & is pretty well established.
If needed, where would future CW oprs come from?

Several years ago there was a halfway decent Wall Street Journal article that hinted at a little bit of breadth in CW usage... but these kinds of articles (maybe by necessity? ) focus on individuals. And for better or worse make it always sound like CW is the "odd guy out" instead of the "preferred mode". http://online.wsj.com/article/SB119161604206850468.html

I know after I got licensed I went to another forum and saw this subtitle:
"A forum for the discussion of Digital, SSTV, CW, and any other alternative transmission modes"

rofl - I thought "...alternative to what?"
