CEPT (The European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications 
Administration) no longer accepts US Amateurs below Advanced. General and 
below no longer have full CEPT privileges in CEPT Countries. "Changes in the 
US license structures and examinations often have ancillary implications 
beyond the immediate impact upon the US licensees," said Dan Henderson, 
N1ND, ARRL Regulatory Information Manager.

It looks like the US ham licence is going the way of the US dollar and US 
prestige abroad.  The test has finally been "restructured" to the point 
where the class that used to make up the majority of US licensees are no 
longer recognized as hams.

And this has nothing to do with eliminating the code requirement.  Most 
European countries got rid of it before we did.
