    I was issued a General Radiotelephone Operators License (GROL) back in the early '80's and was just curious as to whether having that would have any weight on the entry level HAM license (Technician) score?

    Also, I once tested for a HAM license but the Morse Code section [of the testing] was always my downfall. Has that requirement been eliminated now?

    I've got a General license. Code is no longer required during testing. It's pretty cool to talk with people around the world with an antenna in my attic. There is a fair sized HAM community in Oklahoma and the Edmond Amateur Radio Society is active in community events - parades, monthly warning siren tests, OKC Memorial Marathon, etc.

    Excellent, and thank you for the info 'OKCHunter'. I may just have to explore that world again.
