HAM radio operator numbers are up 60% since 1981. That’s cool to hear. I’m sure the removal of the Morse Code requirement was a significant factor.
When I was in 3rd grade I got my HAM radio license and could send Morse Code at 5 wpm (I think). Even though Dad got us a radio set up, we never really used it all that much. Now I can’t really remember much Morse Code. . .
