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.
