Now I need a General
So, for some reason I've been looking at some of the data modes that they have for amateur radio. It turns out that all of the interesting modes they have for data are on HF which my license doesn't cover. Of course, to upgrade my license, I have to learn Morse code, which is about the only HF mode I have no interest in. They might as well just get rid of the code requirements, since they now have modes which are more noise resistant and lower bandwidth than Morse code. About the only arena where code is still king is equipment simplicity.
