Ruiz,

The FCC ruling applies ONLY to amateur (ham) radio. It will mean, when effective (probably in Jan 2007) that all classes of ham licenses can be had without the need for a Morse code proficiency exam.

There was never a Morse code requirement for marine SSB. There remains, however, the need for (a) type acceptance of the equipment; (b) operator license (no test); and (c) station license (no test).
