I don't have a problem with discarding the CW requirement. Most of the people I talk to never learned CW. Although, claiming it is something other than simple lack of will is annoying. I mean you learned how to talk didn't you.

Now you want to make the extra test easier when they give you all the questions and answers.

Really, is the hobby worthless to you ?

If it is annoying, then don't read it. You just can't admit you have a problem with people who have difficulty with CW, which is why it is annoying to you.

Never advocated for any changes. I did suggest that you petition for harder tests if you feel that is what is needed. But I bet your too lazy to do it. Or your just blowin smoke on the subject.

Where did worthless come from? Maybe that's how you feel, and feel the need to run down others to bring them to your level.

Like I said, you feel the need to bi@#h at the expense of others. Goes back to bringing others down to your level. So sad for the hobby...certainly not you.

I have never met anybody who did not have difficulty with CW.  Some had the will to do what was necessary to learn it. Some didn't.

Same with everything else in the world.

I did learn CW. I could not get to 13 wpm after years of practice and multiple ways of trying to get it. I am aggravated with someone with your attitude that anyone can do anything if they have enough will power. That is a load of Crap. You are exactly what turns people off to radio after first getting their ticket. Everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses. I am sure there are plenty of things that I find easy that you would not have a clue about. But of course I am sure you could figure it out with sheer will power, at least in your own mind.

Yeah, I know truck drivers with as much raw intelligence as many doctors. Yet, they drive a truck.

Same thing.

I have been called half a ham or not a real ham in this thread.
I am sorry I do not add up to a real ham in your opinion,

You're a real ham. Some curmudgeons will never be happy because the hobby is changing with the times, and never again will it be like it was in the 60's and 70's. They don't get to define ham radio for the rest of us, ignore their sad and misguided rants. They're dinosaurs.

The reason they changed the rules is because the ARRL, people who sell magazines, and the equipment makers wanted it that way.

Nobody else cares one way or the other.

And , the younger generations living in their mom's basement having been given everything are so used to being given everything that they actually believe that they deserved to have it given to them.
