Default One more stir

I was against dropping the code, but I can see why it was done and can accept it. What really bothers me is even before they dropped the code completely, anyone could get a copy of the question pool, then they ddin't have to understand anything, just memorize it. When I took my extra, I got 100% on the written test but flunked the 20 wpm code test. That is why I am still an Advanced. Back when I got my general, I had to go to the FCC office. That was a hassle!!

I was one of those who built my first rigs, even though they were kits, it was definetely a learning experience. It is a shame that we have become "out of the box" hams. Sort of miss something that way.
