One of my (now famous) protege's was handicapped by not (yet) being able
to operate in the Extra Class CW Band-segments in spite of the fact that he
could copy 40 WPM (or more) at his young age. What purpose was being
served by prohibiting this VERY capable CW operator from operating in
the Extra Classs Band Segments?
I can't help but wonder if he could copy 40 wpm and had a general class license, why did he not upgrade to Extra Class?
