While many ham radio aficionados will continue to learn Morse Code, there will be no requirements to learn it. Newer digital, image, satellite, wireless and voice technologies have replaced it. Dropping the Morse code requirement has been the subject of heated debate over the past several years, among operators, many of whom got their first training in Morse code when they earned the Boy Scout Radio Merit Badge. http://www.networkworld.com/news/2006/121906-morse -code.html"
