an amusing thought of Morse Code

I was reading on Copper.net in it forum section the obviously heart felt concern some coders seem to have that code will jus die off if Codetesting is ended. i contrast this wi the fact I a Nocoder would like Code use to end but don't think it ois ever going even if the FCC were persaded to ban Code use

a Rumour I heard on R&O

rumour goes that the R&O is waiting till after the election given the uproar over the other one this fall

I don't say I believe that but it makes an amusing rumour

what does the kosher ham need to get started

well to get started I need either the R&O (or soem vVEs that can be bribed realy cheap:) as I have spent 5 years in my teen trying and failing to learn Morse Code (obviously I don't plan on USING that mode much althought my wife is loooking at for some reason hopefully the FCC will issue the report and Order later today monday or soon thereafter

what does the Kosher ham for HF?

well I own a Yeasu FT 847 which is nice nice satleite rig but I not using it much anymore in favor of the IC-910h it is setup with a LONG semirandon wire dipolish antenna and autotuner over all length is about 300 ft and 35 feet in height should be a decent antenna by what I read

realy looking forward most to the lower band at night since that is when I have a lot of dead time and VHJF get realy dead at night aways from the cities one of the real probelm with the tech licens e as curently configured

an opening thought on the soon to begin exploration of HF by the Kosher Ham

the kosher ham (me Kb9rqz) is waiting with such aptaince as he can muster for the FFC to finaly issue the R&O every ham is wating for the only that will realy affect all ahms to be issued this
