Isn't it cool that in ham radio we've got our own slang? Take "Ham" or "Lid" for instance. Well, I'd like to propose a new handle; "CAP" the Code-A-Phobic ham, or Code-A-Phobe if you prefer. Webster defines phobia as an "inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situation....having an intolerance or aversion for." Yep, CAP seems to fit the bill for the ever seeming to whine, "give me my license and privileges even if I'm not willing to earn them" so-called ham. A CAP has such an aversion that he doesn't even seem to tolerate CW, let alone take the time to learn 5 words per minute. It's a shame too, CW is the best, most efficient, and downright fun mode going in ham radio! CW Dead? N E V E R ! They won't get my key until they pry my cold, dead fingers from it! Do you know a "CAP"? One can tell by the whine....
How 'bout it?...don't be a "No Code"...be a "Know Code!"...CW; it's in, it's digital, it's hot, it rocks, and It Rules!
