Sorry you feel that way Lou. However, I think you're grossly mistaken. If anything, I think the opposite will occur.
Those who continue to operate on CW will do so because they enjoy it, not because they're trying to get their code speeds up to pass a test. It follows then that if it is enjoyed, it will maintain at least some modicum of popularity. CW is an acquired taste. Not everyone acquires it. It took me a long time to really settle down and enjoy it. I actually find that lately I spend much more time cruising the exclusive CW sub-bands for DX and ragchews than I do the Phone 'bands. Never in a googleplex of nanoseconds thought that would happen! 73 -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Behalf Of lmecseri -KE1F Sent: Thursday, December 21, 2006 6:50 AM To: Shelby Summerville Cc: DX-Chat Subject: Re: [DX-CHAT] VU7LD <clip> But since CW is no longer a requirement for a HAM license the mode CW is not and will not be popular. <clip> 73s Lou KE1F Shelby Summerville wrote: >On 12/19, I wrote: "I "thought" I worked VU7LD/VU3ELR, 12/16, 1455Z, 20 >SSB."
