You're right Rob. You really have to watch us "no code" hams! We're stupid and a danger to ourselves and everyone around us.

Indeed--it used to be that when Extra involved a 20 wpm CW test, the %
of Extras of the entire US licensees hung steady at 5 percent.

Obviously elimination of the CW test, and of course the other aids
facilitating memorization have pumped up the percentage.

What's the result?  Questions to the QST Q&A column from hams with
Extra class call signs looking for answers for such as why their 80 m.
dipole won't work on 40 m.
