I was reading my news feeds and noticed a link to this article via /. Apparently, the FCC is no longer going to require Morse Code to become an amateur radio operator. I’m not so sure that’s a good thing, but it seems that they are wanting to get more people involved and dropping the code requirements may help with that some. However, even though I never really used code enough to really get any good at it, I think it should still be a requirement. There are many cases where code HF can get through, but voice cannot.
