Morse Code No Longer Required for Ham License (12/18)
Monday, December 18, 2006 | Comments
Morse code is no longer required for earning an amateur radio license in the U.S. In a statement, the FCC joined an international trend by announcing the elimination of testing for proficiency in Morse code for all amateur radio license classes. Within 72 hours of the announcement that the Morse requirement was being dropped, the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) staff reported a doubling of the requests for study materials for new or upgraded licensees.

What is the easiest course for beginners to learn ham licenses? No Morse code.

Years ago I held a technician no-code license and then passed the general class test as well, but never took the Morse code part for the general class license. Can I still be credited for the general class license upon taking the required fields to get my license reinstated or must I retest for the written aspect of the general class license as well?
