+ - FCC drops Morse code testing for ham licenses

Submitted by Voltaire759
Voltaire759 (886405) writes "The FCC has decided to drop the requirement for Morse code testing for all amateur radio licenses. The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) has the announcement as well as the FCC website. From the ARRL article: "The effective date of the FCC's R&O will be 30 days after publication in the Federal Register — most likely in February. Currently, Amateur Radio applicants must pass a 5 WPM Morse code test to operate on HF. The FCC's action will eliminate that requirement all around.""
