Here in Canada the licence is free and lasts until you die. There is
no longer an annual station licence fee to pay, and one amateur can
hold a number of licences (callsigns) at a time, not just one.

Unfortunately, it looks like Morse is on its way out here too in
Canada. Our RAC (Radio Amateurs of Canada) society petitioned
Industry Canada to do away with the (highly relaxed) code requirement
of 5 words per minute to gain HF access. So I guess there will have
to be some form of barrier, guess they may beef up the "Basic" or
especially the "Advanced" licence exam. A "Basic" licencee is
allowed to run only 250 watts, may not control a repeater with input
and output on the same band, and may not build transmitters or modify
transmitters so that they are not type-approved. An "Advanced"
licencee can run up to 1000 watts DC input, may control a repeater
with input and output on the same band, may build his own transmitters
or modify transmitters so they are not type-approved.

I couldn't help but notice the subject "Re:Morse"....

REMORSE?? pun intended of course!

If morse were ever eliminated as an amateur mode (which of course is
NOT being contemplated by any nation) it would be a sad day indeed.

However, I do not believe that code ability should be used as a
filter to prevent otherwise talented would-be amateurs from enjoying
the service (hobby?).

I have noticed one POSITIVE outcome from the lack of favor being
experienced by morse code: My 100 barefoot watts and wire antennas
are doing MUCH better in the DX wars!

Just to make this an official IC7000-related posting: I look
forward to purchasing my IC7000 about 6 to 12 months after the
initial production runs are released. I prefer to let someone else
debug my radios!
