Bye bye, CW

December 19, 2006

Well the end has come for the Morse Code requirement for Amateur Radio. I have held my Tech ticket for almost 10 years now always wanting to pass my Morse Code, or CW as it is known by in ham radio, but never been able to study long enough to learn it. The FCC just released information that CW will no longer be a requirement for amateur radio and will probably take effect in February. So now I just have to wait until then and take a test to advance up the next level which is general class.

I still have all of the study material so I hope to come back later and learn it and try to use it, but don’t know if I will get to or not. I guess time will tell.


ps Yea, I know, two post in less than 24 hours 🙂
