Lowering of standards

It's a sad commentary that for this as well as many other issues, rather than create higher expectations, we simply lower them to meet today's easy-way-out society.

It has nothing to do with military or other needs - keeping the code requirement mearly limited radio priviledges to those willing to work for them. absent that hurdle, ham radio will evolve into just another form of CB radio, much as our 2 meter band has degenerated into now with the advent of no-code VHF licenses.

this isn't a soap box nor is it relevent to the original post - all I intended was to correct misstatements by others quoted as fact.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

k1vsk you're the one on the soap box. There is still an intensive exam to take to get a HAM licence, it's just more relevent.

I guess if you consider multiple choice as "intensive", you win...

e-mail with Your Icom M-700Pro

Yes, you can add e-mail capability to your M-700Pro. I've posted a lot of info about this on the www.dockSide Radio.com web site. While you're poking around there, be sure to download the Marine SSB/Ham Net schedules, and the step-by-step instructions on how you can program frequencies into your radio.

Maybe you would suggest essay questions. By intensive I meant that one requires a fair amount of knowledge of radios, which requires studying and practice exams in order to pass to get your licence. You are not going to see HAM go the way of the CB/VHF. They dropped the code requirement because it lacked relevance in the 21st century.

Essay would be preferable, albeit impractical. It wasn't long ago when applicants had to actually draw schematics of basic circuits as opposed to today when success is measured in terms of how well one memorizes answers from a limited question pool.

Regarding "seeing Ham radio go the way of CB, we already HAVE seen (i.e, heard) it on 2 meters. Goes to show anyone who cares to listen what the result is of dropping or lowering the code requirements. It appears short-sighted, given that ham requirements for code long preceeded military requirements, to believe that is at all relevent.
Guess it's all on how you perceive reality.

K1vsk,, i never said that you couldn't own a ssb just if you are going to use it it would be to your best interests to have the proper licenses to avoid any problems.... you can use it to recieve weather faxes and updates BUT if you are going to use it for snail mail then that requires you to TRANSMIT as well as recieve... and i concur with you on the morse requirement i still think that cw has a place in the world of ham's being able to communicate on 1/25 of a watt is a useful advantage

This is the error to which I was referring

BTW SSB radios, at least in the United States are required to be installed by someone with an FCC technician class license IIRC. If you've installed it yourself, you may find yourself in legal problems in the future with the FCC... YMMV.

The latter half of this message is the error to which I referred - anyone can legally install any radio; paranthetically, there is no Technician license anymore
